State Specific Self-Testing Services

In June 2020, NASTAD surveyed its members to learn more about how health departments are providing access to at-home HIV, HCV, STI, and PrEP self-testing services. Thirty-eight health departments responded to the request for information. The map below includes information on state-based self-testing programs shared with NASTAD. This map will be updated as more self-testing programs are launched.
