Improving men’s uptake of HIV testing and linkage to services

by WHO

In 2019 an estimated 7.2 million people, 19% of all those with HIV, were undiagnosed. Men in high HIV burden settings and men from key populations are consistently less likely to  know their HIV status than women. WHO recommends a  strategic mix of differentiated HIV testing services (HTS) approaches to reach men and link  them to appropriate prevention and treatment services.

This policy brief highlights WHO-recommended HTS approaches that programmes can introduce or scale up now to optimize  the uptake of HTS among men. The brief also summarizes a package of post-test services for men. HTS can link men to these services as appropriate for their test results.
