I’m Ready – INSTI HIV Self-Testing Project

Hand holding a phone with the I'm Ready project app on the screen

I’m Ready to Know is about ending HIV in Canada with low-barrier access to self-testing and connections to care. I’m Ready to Know is a national program that is implementing, scaling up and evaluating low-barrier options for access to HIV self-testing. We want to reach the undiagnosed and give people choices about connecting to the care they need. Our vision is for everyone in Canada to have access to HIV testing and support.

Our flagship initiative, the I’m Ready research program, is distributing 50,000 HIV self-testing kits across Canada and inviting self-testers to connect to care and to anonymously share their results. If you are interested in participating, connect via the link below. Manitoba has several sites that are distributing the kits.
