Got a kit but not from us?

On November 3, 2020, Health Canada approved Canada’s first ever HIV self-test! Here at GetaKit, we couldn’t be more excited. We believe that HIV self-testing is an important tool for people to use to know their status.

Having an approved HIV self-test means you can buy these tests directly from the manufacturer or even at select pharmacies. It’s possible that others will offer HIV self-testing through their own programming as well.

Whether you got a kit from us or not, the GetaKit team is here to answer any questions you might have about next steps at [email protected].
