Can HIV self-testing help reach those at risk for HIV and not accessing traditional testing services in Senegal?

Senegal is one of the countries in sub-Saharan Africa where an HIV self-testing (HIVST) policy is under development, but existing evidence on acceptability of HIVST and strategies for effective implementation in the region is limited. This brief highlights findings from assessing the acceptability of HIVST for key populations and people in their social and sexual networks, and the effectiveness of HIVST in reaching first-time testers. The research will help inform appropriately scaled implementation of HIVST in Senegal and across West Africa.
