I’m Ready to Know is about ending HIV in Canada with low-barrier access to self-testing and connections to care.
I’m Ready to Know is a national program that is implementing, scaling-up and evaluating low-barrier options for access to HIV self-testing. We want to reach the undiagnosed and give people choices about how to connect to the care they need. Our vision is for everyone in Canada to have access to HIV testing and support.
We know that one size doesn’t fit all. We are designing different access and delivery options for HIV self-testing in Canada and evaluating how well these work, for whom, and in what contexts. We’re also creating care pathways, to help people navigate HIV testing, care and prevention systems and services.
Our flagship initiative, the I’m Ready research program, is distributing 50,000 HIV self-testing kits across Canada and inviting self-testers to connect to care and to anonymously share their results. We are also working on kiosk kit distribution, test-at-home programs and pharmacist-led connections to care.
