Interim findings presentation at HPE conference

Interim findings on targeting Black African people with HIV self-sampling kits.

On February 19th 2015 Esther Mugweni presented the first set of interim findings from the first Phase of the HAUS study at the HIV Prevention England conference. This talk features an initial analysis of how acceptable it is to target HIV self sampling kits at Black African people in public services and settings. In the main, professional and non-professional participants tended to focus on the considerable drawbacks of using a targeted approach (where the kits would be made available or offered only to people who are Black African). There was some discussion however about how a balanced approach is possible with the correct resourcing, training and competencies among those who provide the kits. The slides from this presentation are available from the link below.
