Following a public consultation, Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has announced that the Secretary of the Department of Health has lifted the ban on the sale of HIV self-tests.

The decision is aligned with the Seventh National HIV Strategy (2014-2017), which aims to increase detection of HIV in the community by enabling greater access to HIV self-test kits that have been assessed for quality, safety and performance by the TGA. As a result of the Secretary’s action the kits can now be supplied in Australia, subject to review and approval by the TGA.
