5th February 2018

On Tuesday, 30 January, Kaveri Kumar, Robert Bagnall and Laura Grobicki, CEPA's principal and two senior global health consultants, visited Unitaid's secretariat (hosted by the World Health Organisation in Geneva) to deliver their team's conclusions from the mid-term evaluation of Unitaid’s HIV self-testing project.

The PSI HIV Self-Testing AfRica (STAR) project is a five-year programme for HIV self-testing in Africa, which was launched in 2015. At its commencement, it was the largest evaluation of HIV self-testing (HIVST) in Africa. The two-year, $23m Unitaid/PSI pilot project was implemented in partnership with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and University College London. For more information about the project, please visit either Unitaid’s website or read more on Impact, the PSI's hub for news and analyses on global health and international development matters.
