Can a minor use an EXACTO® Test HIV Self-test?

Yes, a minor (aged under 18) can use an EXACTO® Test HIV Self-test.
The EXACTO® Test HIV Self-test should not be used for a newborn aged under 18 months. Indeed, the child of an HIV-positive mother, whether or not infected, cannot be screened with a self-test kit because the maternal IgG antibodies that have crossed the placental barrier still remain.
