  • Description:
    Direct Provision of Free HIV Self-Tests among Female Sex Workers in Uganda is designed to increase HIV self-testing among female sex workers (FSWs). Select FSWs are first trained as peer educators to instruct study participants to use the oral HIV self-test, interpret test results, and encourage linkage to HIV treatment and prevention services. These peer educators meet with study participants 4 times during the four-month duration of the study. At each study visit, peer educators distribute condoms, refer participants to standard of care HIV testing services, and screen for potential adverse events. During the first study visit, 8 FSWs meet as a group with the peer educator to receive 1 free oral fluid rapid HIV self-test, training on HIV-self testing procedures and linkage to care. Peer educators meet with each participant individually during the remaining 3 study visits and provide a 2nd free HIV self-test at the last study visit. Peer educators also encourage participants to test for HIV again after 3 months of testing HIV negative, or to instruct participants to go to a healthcare facility for confirmatory testing if they test HIV positive.
