Participants were given a saliva-based self test and a tablet with the application, guiding them through the process of conducting and performing the tests, connecting to the results and saving them.
The researchers concluded that the applied process was "accepted and feasible" for potential participants to increase their growth in populations with a high risk of HIV.
In fact, home HIV self-repair kits were not yet accepted in Canada, participants attempts were made in a clinical setting and results were confirmed with a blood test.
The World Health Organization recommends that countries reduce the number of people who do not diagnose HIV to establish self-protection strategies.
