Faster HIV Test for NZ but still none in OZ

Wellington in New Zealand is about to get the 20 minute HIV test from 1 November but in Australia the situation remains that the test isn't available.

ACON in August in SSO said that the rapid test wasn't needed here as most gay men tested.

If the response in New Zealand is anything to go by then it would suggest the rapid test would be welcomed by men in Australia. One has to think there must be guys who live outside the major centres (and in the major centres) who would like to be able to tested in a major city and find it easier to test when visiting than having the test in a small rural town or trying to get back to get the test results.
