4Youth by Youth (4YBY) Challenge Contest for HIV Self Testing for Nigerians 2020

4Youth by Youth (4YBY) Challenge Contest is open to applicants who must be between 14 and 24 years and currently residing in Nigeria.
4YBY is a team of young people, activists, health professionals, and entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds, who are united by the shared passion to advance Nigerian youth participation in innovation and entrepreneurship for sustainable HIV prevention services, including HIV Self-testing.

4YBY believes that young people in Nigeria have the potential to create health solutions that work for them and their peers. As a result, they are looking to create and launch the most compelling ideas that will promote “HIV Self-Testing among youth in Nigeria”.

HIV self-testing is the type of HIV testing you can do by yourself. It allows you to collect your own test specimen such as saliva or blood, perform the test, and interpret the results in private, either alone or with guidance from someone you trust.
