HIV Self-Testing Kit Goes on Sale in UK

The first legally approved HIV self-testing kit has gone on sale in the UK. The BioSure HIV Self Test will enable people to test themselves when and where they like, with a 99.7% accuracy rate. An estimated 26,000 people in the UK have HIV but are unaware of it, making them unknowingly responsible for the majority of onward transmissions. Due to developments in treatments available, HIV is now a manageable disease but late diagnosis can have a devastating impact on health and life expectancy.

World Records Shattered for HIV Testing

Record-breaking numbers of people in eastern Africa have received HIV counselling and testing through two historic initiatives in Ethiopia, Botswana, South Africa and Tanzania. In the Gambella Region of Ethiopa, a new world record was set for the most people being tested for HIV during an eight-hour period. The initiative brought together 3,383 people to receive HIV counselling and testing at the Gambella Stadium. Three representatives of the Guinness Book of World Records were present to record the event.
