Two systematic reviews and meta-analyses comparing HIV self-testing to standard HIV testing services have been published. Johnson et al (2017) found that HIV self-testing is associated with increased uptake and frequency of testing, while Figueroa et al (2018) found that self-testers can reliably and accurately conduct HIV rapid diagnostic tests, as compared with trained healthcare workers.
