STAR HIV Self-Testing Africa

Project Summary 

The UCL role is to use the Synthesis model to address two main aims:

(i) estimate the epidemiological impact and cost-effectiveness of community-based HIV self-testing in different sub-populations and across scenarios characterized by different adult HIV prevalence and antiretroviral treatment programmes in sub-Saharan Africa;

(ii) assess impact and cost-effectiveness of two HIV self-testing secondary distribution modalities: through women attending antenatal clinics and through female sex workers to their male partners.
