Port-of-Spain, November 28th, 2016:
The Ministry of Health is aware of the availability of HIV home testing kits in Trinidad and Tobago. The Ministry wishes to advise members of the public who have concerns about their HIV status to get tested at a quality assured Ministry of Health testing site.
Persons using home kits not reviewed and approved by the Ministry may lead to self diagnosis outside of a supportive environment where they can be linked to clinical services for follow up care for themselves or those that they care about.
The Ministry of Health reiterates, that if you have concerns about your HIV status, please present yourself to a quality assured Ministry of Health testing site for further evaluation.
For information on testing locations, persons may contact the HIV/AIDS Coordinating Unit at (868) 624-0116 / (868) 627-2004.
