HIV Self-Testing Linkage Card

This referral card was developed by Wits for HIV self-testers to return for confirmatory testing in South Africa. The card displays images of positive, negative, and inconclusive/invalid oral HIVST results with corresponding key messages for linkage and retesting. The card has space for providers to note the appropriate referral source for voluntary medical male circumcision for individuals with a nonreactive test, as well as the nearest referral to a general practice service provider, public sector clinic, and mobile service point where individuals with reactive and inconclusive/invalid tests can seek retesting. The card also provides the National HIV & AIDS Helpline for self-testers in need of further support or assistance.
