WHY ?

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent HIV infection.
  • However, treatments exist for an infected individual that considerably reduce the risk of transmission.
  • autotest VIH® can serve as a complement to conventional testing services(2).
  • In the event of a positive result, the test makes it possible for a person to seek medical care and benefit from treatment after having a confirmatory lab test.
  • A negative result means that a person is probably not infected with HIV and can feel confident about his/her HIV status if the most recent risk of exposure occurred at least 3 months ago.
