National HIV self-sampling service

In support of National HIV Testing Week 2018, Public Health England (PHE) have once again expanded availability of free HIV postal test kits to all areas of England.

The scheme is funded to support people from communities which experience a higher prevalence of HIV. These include gay and bisexual men, black African men and women, and individuals who have a partner from a high prevalence country.

The additional tests are available to order from now until Monday 7 January 2019.
