Instant Results for HIV

Better2Know’s Instant HIV testing is available in selected locations across Africa. The test is appropriate just 26 days after an incident of concern and requires a single blood sample, which is usually taken from the fingertip.

At your appointment, your sample will be collected by an experienced clinician, who will run the test while you wait in the clinic. This test is suitable for both men and women, and will detect both types of HIV (type I and type II) as well as the p24 antigen.

A drop of blood from your sample is added to a test strip, followed by a drop of a reagent solution. This process takes less than 30 minutes, so you will receive your results before leaving the clinic.
