Unitaid-PSI / HIV Self-Testing Africa (STAR) Initiative, New Start program (N.D.).

This brochure was developed as a supplementary resource for HIV self-testers in the New Start Program in South Africa. The brochure contains images of oral HIV self-testing (HIVST); offers positive messaging about the availability of treatment; and answers frequently asked questions about the reliability of HIVST results and the need for confirmatory testing after receiving a reactive result. It includes a help hotline phone number for self-testers with further questions or in need of instruction. Details on other health services offered by the New Start Program are also described.
