WHO / UNITAID, 2015.

“This report presents the potential for HIV self-testing to contribute to achieving global 90–90–90 targets for treatment access by 2020, provides projections of the demand for and supply of HIV rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) for self-testing and summarizes the emerging market landscape for self-testing.
