“Your support means so much to all of us at the Foundation, our partners, and the vulnerable communities we serve who are at risk of HIV and stigmatised for who they are.”
Elton John, Founder
Challenge Fund Scale-Up-Kenya
Adult men constitute the largest segment of those with unknown status in sub-Saharan Africa. HIV self-testing has proven to be an effective tool for overcoming men's reluctance to test. In Kenya, CIFF, the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and Unitaid have created a distribution system to provide HIV self-testing kits available in pharmacies, community centers, and high risk workplaces so young men are motivated to find out their status to protect their partners.
