Head of Aids and Tuberculosis Unit Dr Owen Mugurungi said that Government will this month nationalise the HIV and Aids self-testing programme.
Said Dr Mugurungi:
The project, has delivered outstanding results, which motivated the investment of additional funds for phase two, which will be launched in mid of July 2017. Under phase two, HIV self-testing (HIVST) will expand to all provinces in Zimbabwe and will be scaled up to explore additional distribution models. It will also be integrated at heath facility level and offered to clients for distribution to their sexual partners to reach partners who are not able to access health facilities for HIV testing.
