OQHIVST Trial Summary

This trial is testing a new method of at-home HIV testing using oral fluid. They want to see if it is accurate and easy to use.

Who is the study for?
This study is for Canadian residents aged 18 or older who have not been diagnosed with HIV, are not healthcare professionals experienced in HIV testing, and are not on any anti-HIV medications. Participants must be able to consent, speak English or French, provide oral fluid and blood samples, and commit to the study's process.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The OraQuick® HIV Self-Test is being evaluated among about 900 individuals inexperienced in self-testing for its accuracy and user-friendliness. The test uses oral fluid to detect HIV, and participants will perform the test themselves at various clinic sites across Canada.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves a non-invasive self-test for detecting HIV using oral fluids rather than a drug intervention, there are no direct side effects associated with typical medical treatments. However, potential indirect effects may include anxiety or distress from test results.
