Bringing self-collection kits for STBBI testing to scale for 2SLGBTQIA+ people in Canada: How should we do this?

Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transfer, Queer and/or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, and additional gender and sexual identities (2SLGBTQIA+) people continue to face multiple barriers in getting tested for sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs) in Canada, requiring testing services that help overcome these barriers. Self-collection kits for STBBI testing are one option that is appealing for many people and are widely used in some other countries. No provincial or territorial jurisdiction in Canada has introduced self-collection kits on a large scale, although there several small-scale programs in different parts of the country. Self-collection kits for STBBI testing are becoming available in some places from private companies on a for-pay basis, which is out of reach for many people. A key step in developing larger scale projects in Canada is making sure that these kits are designed and made available in ways that work for 2SLGBTQIA+ people.
