Introduction. HIV testing services (HTS) are the gateway to prevention, care and treatment of those with HIV. Despite achievements in the scale-up and expansion of HTS over the past three decades, it is estimated that only 45% of people with HIV are aware of their serostatus ().Furthermore, there are two million new infections annually, of which nearly half are among key populations ().Cited by: 4.
