The UNITAID HIV Rapid Diagnostic Tests for Self-Testing Landscape was first published on World Aids Day in December 2015, as part of an effort to build an understanding of the HIV self-testing (HIVST) market. A second edition was published in July 2016 at the International AIDS Conference, with a focus on description of new technologies and the products available or in the pipeline.

for the following areas of the HIVST market and technology landscape:

frameworks
