HIV testing can also be done at home with a home testing kit. It is a convenient and reliable way to test HIV if your access to testing facilities is restricted or if you prefer a private testing environment. The Autotest VIH home test kit has been evaluated by Hivpoint in cooperation with health authorities and its reliability and ease has been confirmed.

The test only requires a small drop of blood from your fingertip and testing can be completed in three easy steps that should take only five minutes. The test result will be ready in 15 minutes. The test result given by a HIV home test kit is reliable when it has been three months since the unprotected sex or other exposure to HIV.
