Methodology
Survey implemented in three countries (Cote d'Ivoire, Mali and Senegal) and through all delivery channels. In a random sub-sample (around 5%) of distributed HIV self-testing (HIVST), a coupon was inserted inviting HIVST users to call a free phone number to complete an anonymous questionnaire. Most HIVST users were reached through secondary distribution and therefore were not directly seen by peer educators or health care professionals. The approach preserved anonymity of survey participants. The coupons survey generated the profile of HIVST users by delivery channel and helped researchers understand self-testers' testing history. As many HIVST users did not self-identify as men who have sex with men, female sex workers or people who use injecting drugs, delivery channels identifiers were stuck onto each distributed HIVST. Survey participants with a positive or indeterminate result were asked if they agree to be called back six months later in order to collect data on linkage to confirmatory testing and antiretroviral therapy.
