Methodology
Anthropological qualitative survey were conducted among female sex workers in Cote d'Ivoire to investigate (i) the social factors contributing positively or negatively to the establishment of an appropriate environment for HIV self-testing (HIVST) adoption by communities; (ii) how HIVST is perceived, appropriated and used by these groups; and (iii) the social impacts of HIVST, in particular regarding stigmatization and equity of health. Perceptions and impacts for peer educators and health care professionals were also explored.
