Offering HIV testing services, including HIV self-testing, at formal and informal workplaces has emerged as an effective, acceptable and feasible approach for reaching men. A 2018 World Health Organization (WHO) and International Labour Organization (ILO) policy brief provides key guiding principles for HIVST implementation at workplaces. Building on the 2018 policy brief, this brief captures early experience with HIVST implementation at workplaces and discusses emerging approaches of sustainable financing that can be adapted for HIV self-testing at workplaces.

Achieving validation of elimination of mother-to-child transmission (EMTCT) of HIV, syphilis and hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a tremendous accomplishment, requiring health ministry–led accountability, rigorous data analysis, intensive programme assessment and multilevel collaboration. This governance guidance outlines the standardized structures and processes used to validate EMTCT of HIV, syphilis and HBV at the national, regional and global levels. Replacing an earlier version published in June 2020 addressing EMTCT of HIV and syphilis, this revised governance document aligns with new information in the Global guidance on criteria and processes for validation: elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis B virus, in which WHO sets criteria for validation of triple elimination.

The Strategy sets out the principles, approaches, priority action area and programmatic targets for the global HIV response.
