our work


Over the past decade, great progress has been made in expanding HIV testing services. Yet in 2019, there were still 8.1 million people with HIV unaware of their HIV positive status. To meet the global 95-95-95 targets, there must be innovations in methods for testing.
The STAR Initiative has worked to increase uptake and frequency of HIV self-testing (HIVST) among priority population groups previously not reached. Explore the innovative approach that the STAR Initiative is taking in South Africa through this interactive photo story.
