Take Part in Canada's first HIV self-test study!


You're invited to be part of an important research study about the INSTI HIV Self-Test in Canada. Women's Health in Women's Hands Community Health Centre is pleased to be one of the official test sites for this study, which is funded by The CIHR Centre for REACH 3.0 and the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR). Testing will start in August 2019 and run until November 2019. 


This study will include 1,000 participants from key priority populations in Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, and Victoria and will be conducted for 12 to 16 weeks per location. 


If you're selected to take part, you'll be asked to participate in a confidential 45-60 min testing session with a healthcare professional. Participants will be compensated for their time. 


During the session, you'll help to evaluate the INSTI HIV Self-Test device's performance, including performing steps to use the device and interpreting your test results.
