This brief is based on the findings of three impact evaluations that examined the effectiveness of oral HIV self-tests. All three studies found that the provision of oral HIV self-tests increased testing among female sex workers compared to standard testing services. Secondary distribution methods, such as peer-to-peer distribution, may reach more female sex workers than distribution through clinics and pharmacies.
