Core Tip We conducted a scoping review of the literature on the topic: "Preferences for oral- vs blood-based human immunodeficiency (HIV) virus self-testing: A scoping review of the literature". The study aimed to determine the preference for oral vs blood-based HIV self-testing (HIVST) and related factors. We searched various databases such as PubMed, Medline, Google Scholar, and Web of Science for articles published between January 2011 and October 2022 that addressed preferences for oral- vs blood-based HIVST. Our study found that pooled preference for blood-based HIVST was 48.8% (9%-78.6%) while preference for oral HIVST was 59.8% (34.2%-91%) across all studies. However, for men-specific studies, the preference for blood-based HIVST (58%-65.6%) was higher than oral (34.2%-41%). The results from our study highlight the need to addressing misinformation and distrust through promotional messaging to maximize the diversity of this new biomedical technology.
