Not enough young people are getting tested, and the people who are most in need of testing in our communities may have very limited access to HIV testing services.

(YOU)th can change that!

Did you know that you can now test for HIV by yourself using a HIV self-testing kit?

What is HIV self-testing?
HIV self-testing is the type of HIV testing you can do by yourself. It allows you to collect your own test specimen such as saliva or blood, perform the test, and interpret the results in private, either alone or with guidance from someone you trust.

Why does this matter?

For far too long, Nigerian Youth have been left behind on decision processes or actions that impact their lives. Given the status of the environment, society and economy today, we need new ideas and actions to show how a new world is possible. We believe that Nigerian youth can bring a new level of thinking to the most challenging problems in our society!
