Abstract:

This Guideline brings together existing guidance relevant to the provision of HTS and addresses issues and elements for effective delivery of HTS that are common in a variety of settings, contexts and diverse populations. In addition, this document provides a new recommendation to support HTS by trained lay providers, considers the potential of HIV self-testing to increase access to and coverage of HIV testing, and outlines focused and strategic approaches to HTS that are needed to support the new UN 90–90–90 global HIV targets – the first target being diagnosis of 90% of people with HIV (20). Moreover, this guidance will assist national programme managers and service providers, including those from community-based programmes, in planning for and implementing HTS.
