What does a positive result obtained with the EXACTO® Test HIV Self-test mean?

Considering the reliability of the EXACTO® Test HIV Self-test, a positive result indicates a likely infection with the HIV virus.

Any positive result from a self-test must be confirmed with a 4th generation Elisa test, performed in a laboratory. A person with a positive result must be immediately referred either to a service that provides care to persons living with HIV or a GP. The importance of early treatment in the case of a confirmed HIV infection must be underlined.
