Ukrainians are offered to order free HIV tests at home

From now on, everyone in Ukraine can be diagnosed by testing for HIV at home. You can check your health and the health of your loved ones through the prozdorovia.in.ua website.

It is now possible to be screened, i.e. to determine the risks of HIV infection and order a free oral HIV test, using the “I want to be examined” option on the website prozdorovia.in.ua. The site will offer the user to answer a questionnaire to find out about the risks of HIV infection and order a test at home or help find the nearest testing point in his/her city.

An oral HIV test is one of the newest options in diagnosing the disease. It is very easy to use, and the result can be obtained in 20 minutes. Diagnostic accuracy reaches 99% if the instructions are followed. You can order such a test from any region of Ukraine.

“Today, almost every second Ukrainian with HIV still does not know about his/her status. Awareness of the health condition is the key to long life. We want every Ukrainian to take care of his/her own health and the health of their close ones. That is why we have developed the most convenient diagnostic process. Now you can take care of your health, literally without leaving home,” says Khrystyna Brodych, director of the USAID HealthLink project, the largest HIV testing project in Ukraine. “It should be added that the statistics of our project show a high detection rate among men aged 35-50 years. So, on October 1, we launched an information campaign aimed at drawing men’s attention to the problem of spreading HIV and checking their health.”

prozdorovia.in.ua is the first resource in Ukrainian that combines all the key information about sexual and mental health, such diseases as HIV, tuberculosis, and viral hepatitis. Here you can find professional recommendations for doctors and advice for patients on how to keep their health and the health of relatives, check yourself on the immunization record card, and learn how to protect yourself and your family during COVID-19. The content of the site was developed by specialists of the largest patient organization CO «100% Life” together with experts of the Public Health Center of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

 

The development of prozdorovia.in.ua was initiated by CO “100% Life” and implemented within the HealthLink project titled “Accelerating Ukraine’s Efforts to End HIV” with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
The HealthLink project “Accelerating Ukraine’s Efforts to End HIV” is implemented during 2017-2022 in 12 priority for PEPFAR Ukrainian regions: Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Kirovohrad, Kyiv, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Poltava, Kherson, Cherkasy, Chernihiv oblasts, and Kyiv. The project aims to improve the access of people living with HIV and representatives of key groups to quality services for HIV testing, prevention, and treatment. The CO “100% Life” implements this project in partnership with ICF “Alliance for Public Health” with financial support from USAID.
