ETW: self-testing for hepatitis C

View programme

The goal of European Testing Week (22–29 November 2021) is to increase testing efforts and promote awareness on the benefits or earlier hepatitis and HIV testing. In line with that goal, the wish is to highlight approaches and innovations that can increase availability, accessibility and uptake of testing. Self-testing is an effective tool in accelerating progress towards achieving global goals. During the COVID-19 pandemic, testing services have been heavily impacted by restricted access, and self-testing has proven to be an effective way to overcome barriers to access.

On Monday, 8 November 2021, a European Testing Week 2021 webinar will take place from 13:00–14:00 CET. FIND Hepatitis Lead, Sonjelle Shilton, will be presenting on HCV self-testing; opportunities and challenges from real world implementation.
