According to a US government study, mailing free home HIV tests offers potentially a better strategy for detecting infections. 

According to ‘New York Post’ the experiment recruited 2,600 men. Half of them were sent four test kits and the other half were sent a link to local testing services. Overall 25 infections were detected in the self-testing group as opposed to 11 in the other group. 

Over 70% of participants who’s results came out positive, sought treatment.
