Supporting the development of effective and sustainable markets for condoms and HIV self-test kits

To promote an enabling environment for private sector provision of HIV products, SHOPS Plus is supporting the development of efficient and sustainable markets for condoms and the potential introduction of HIV self-testing kits with funding from USAID/Washington.

Globally, these kits help expand access to HIV testing services, especially for key and priority populations who have low uptake of other testing options. SHOPS Plus is working with key in-country partners to identify market gaps and opportunities. If the government approves HIV self-testing kits, the project will develop an action plan and help introduce the product. SHOPS Plus is also analyzing the condom landscape to document identified market gaps and proposed solutions.
