The National Institutes for Health (NIH) has given a $2.3 million grant to develop and implement HIV self-testing in Nigeria. The grant is awarded to Juliet Iwelunmor, Ph.D., an associate professor of global health and behavioral science and health education at the St. Louis University College for Public Health and Social Justice.

Iwelunmor and her team are tasked with creating the Innovative Tools to Expand HIV Self-Testing (I-TEST) to make self-testing for HIV possible.

I-TEST will be deployed in Nigeria where many of the youths die annually of HIV and AIDS-related deaths. The country ranks second in the world in new HIV-infections among youths. With early HIV testing, everyone will be able to access preventive HIV education, care and treatment. Unfortunately, less than one in five Nigerian youths has been tested for HIV.

I-TEST Will Draw On the Resourcesfulness and Resilience of Nigerian Youths for Effectiveness

With the research grant offered to Iwelunmor, several other international institutions will be partnering on the I-TEST project. These include the –

  • Nigerian Institute for Medical Research
  • University of North Carolina
  • New York University School of Medicine

“HIV self-testing decentralizes HIV testing by allowing an individual to collect their own test specimen, perform a test and interpret the result, often in a private setting, either alone or with someone he or she trusts,” Iwelunmor said.

With I-TEST, the Nigerian government’s objectives of ensuring that up to 90% of youths access HIV testing will be realized. Those who test positive to HIV infection can easily be linked to relevant treatment sources and services.

To ensure that every youth accesses I-TEST opportunity in Nigeria, open challenges and entreprenuership trainings targeted at driving youths engagement, participation and innovations will be explored. According to Iwelunmor, innovative solutions that leverage the resourcefulness and resilience of young people are required to reduce HIV transmission.

Three Main Objectives Must Be Achieved With Project Trials in Randomized Clusters

As soon as the effectiveness and readiness of a trial is ascertained, a project strategy will be trialed in a randomized cluster trial in 24 different areas of Nigeria. The following three goals are to be achieved with project trials –

  • Use open challenges and apprenticeship to create self-testing HIV services
  • To evaluate the effectiveness of two semi-finalist interventions on HIV testing
  • To determine the effectiveness of one finalist participatory intervention and prevention outcomes on HIV testing

Iwelunmor disclosed that I-TEST will reconfigure HIV prevention services based on the resourcefulness and power of Nigerian youths aged 14 to 24. This will in turn help the youths to take part in HIV self-testing service design, implementation and evaluation.

“Open challenges and entrepreneurship training can leverage the strengths of young people to generate demand for HIV self-tests and uptake of essential HIV prevention services,” she noted.
