Free webinar from Spring European Testing Week on HIV self-testing
The upcoming Spring European Testing Week is 15-22 May is taking place online this year. It aims to advocate and raise awareness on the importance of HIV, viral hepatitis and STI services (in line with a recent call from UNAIDS) through online platforms and to also share how you and your organisation is supporting your community during this global pandemic.
As part of ETW’s activities, they are hosting a FREE live webinar next Tuesday, 19 May from 16:00-17:00 CEST.
With the current global COVID-19 pandemic, interest for HIV self-testing/sampling has been rapidly increasing due to service closures and/or restrictions to in-person testing. However, in some countries, there exist gaps in knowledge on HIV self-testing/sampling where they may not be widely known or easily available.
This webinar will present case examples from Lithuania (Asociacija Demetra) and Italy (Arcigay/Lila Milano) where pilot activities were undertaken through the INTEGRATE JA (led by partners at Public Health England) to close the knowledge gaps to understand the HIV self-testing situation in both countries. These pilots implemented activities to assess awareness, usability, acceptability, availability and knowledge of self-tests and the findings will be presented in the webinar.
