MONTREAL--As of July 1, take-home HIV tests are available in the United States.
Simple to use, the tests require only a little saliva, a test strip and a colour code.
McGill University epidemiologist Nitika Pai studied the test for over nine years and found it to be "highly accurate."
Despite the accuracy and affordability, the tests will not be available in Canada.
