HIV Self-testing Trial Begins in Canada

Have you heard the news? A groundbreaking new research study into HIV self-testing has recently begun in Canada, with INSTI as the test of choice!

The study, funded by The CIHR Centre for REACH 3.0 and the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR), launched earlier this month. Running for 16 weeks across five cities including Victoria, it includes 1,000 participants from key priority populations who will run the test in sexual health clinics. These focus populations include communities that are disproportionately affected by HIV, those who may be most in need of different options for testing. If the study is successful, then the data that is produced will be used as the cornerstone of a licence application for the INSTI HIV Self Test to Health Canada. If this application is approved, then the test can become available in Canada for discreet, at-home HIV testing.
