Tell Us What You Think

FLASH is researching sex workers' views of HIV self-testing kits, ordered from this site.

Feedback Survey

We hope to find out if web ordering of HIV self-test kits is practical and useful.

  • The survey takes around 5-10 minutes
  • It can be done in one of 5 languages
  • The research has been approved by Brighton and Sussex Medical School Ethics Committee (ER/JV95/2)

We’d really value your experience of:

  • using the website
  • ordering the kits
  • using the HIV self-test kits

PLEASE DON’T GIVE FEEDBACK UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEIVED, AND HOPEFULLY TRIED, THE HIV SELF TEST KITS.

To take the survey there are several options once you have received the kit:

  • Click on the link that is sent in the reminder text or email – online survey
  • Return to this page on the site and click the relevant link below
  • Complete the paper version of the survey, in with the pack you receive; return in pre-paid envelope

If you’d like a reminder to complete the survey in a few weeks’ time give your email address or mobile number:
