Hassle Free is currently doing a research study on HIV self-testing. The study is being led by St. Michaels Hospital and is funded by CIHR Centre for REACH 3.0 and CANFAR.* The Clinic is one of several sites across the country. This trial is to study whether people can successfully use an HIV self-test. If approved, HIV self tests will become available across Canada. It will take approximately 45 minutes and participants will be compensated $50 for their time. You will be asked to do a self-test, interpret the result and answer some questions in the presence of a study observer. You will then have the rapid, INSTI test; as per usual Hassle Free practices.
***In order to participate in this study, please make an appointment during either the Men/Trans and Women/Trans clinic by phone, or in person by speaking to one of our reception staff.***
