Wondfo Facilitates HIV Self-Test in Response to WHO’s Guideline

HIV testing is the cornerstone of treatment and prevention. It is estimated that about 1/5 HIV carriers are undiagnosed, meaning that they are not on treatment, at risk of advanced diseases and able to pass virus on. WHO published guidelines on HIV prevention, testing, treatment, service delivery and monitoring and recommends countries implement self-testing.
 
In 2002, Wondfo developed and launched our first HIV test followed by more HIV tests being launched with R&D. Wondfo’s HIV solution has been applied in over 50 countries worldwide, being widely appreciated. Regarding the partnership, the HIV Self-Test, adopting immunochromatography, enjoys simple operation and short turn-around time. With 3 simple steps, accurate result is delivered in 15 minutes, making it a good fit for HIV at-home testing and monitoring. Moreover, distributing HIV self-test in healthcare facilities can reduce the burden on providers.
