Health office warns against home HIV tests

World Radio Switzerland

Federal health officials have issued a warning against using at-home HIV tests.
The tests can’t be legally sold in Switzerland, but they can still be purchased over the internet.
The Federal Commission for Sexual Health says that not only are the tests unreliable, but that there needs to be accompanying services with such tests including counseling and treatment.
The experts say self-tests can provide either positive or negative incorrect results.
