1.What does the test do?

The OraQuick® HIV Self-Test is an in-vitro diagnostic self-test for HIV (HIV-1 and HIV-2) in oral fluid. The test works by detecting your body’s natural antibodies that help you fight infection. A positive result is preliminary and additional testing at a health facility is required to confirm the result as true.  

2.What is a ‘risk event ‘ for HIV?

A risk event is defined by any of the below activities:

99,0% of people (717/724) correclly reported their result as negative. This means that 7 out of 724 people not infected with HIV reported a positive lest result, This is called a false positive.
