AIDSFree HIV Testing Services Community of Practice Forum

The AIDSFree HIV Testing Services Community of Practice provides a forum to connect with and learn from peers working in HIV testing services around the world. Community members ask questions, share lessons learned, access the latest literature and news in HIV testing, and learn from experts—through a simple, mobile-friendly, email-based format.

Through the Community, members also receive updates on AIDSFree’s upcoming HIV Testing Services webinars on topics including HTS guidance, self-testing, male engagement in testing, index case testing, and more. The Community is hosted through Knowledge Gateway.
