The Policy Paper is a result of a comparative 28-country report conducted by the COBATEST Network in 2022-2023.

Communities and CSOs play a crucial role in advancing HIV testing initiatives, including HIV self-testing.

These challenges include: inconsistent legal frameworks, non-Inclusion in national HIV plans, lack of availability of HIV self-testing kits, high cost of HIV self-testing kits.
