HIV self-screening allows you to find out your status in the privacy of your own home. HIV self-screening does not provide a final diagnosis or result. Instead, it shows the presence of cells and antibodies in your blood which fight HIV. HIV self-screening is very accurate; however, a positive screening result needs to be confirmed by another blood-based test at a medical clinic or through a healthcare professional.
