At scheduled 3- and 6-month follow-up visits between April and July 2020, participants were given a three-month supply of PrEP medication and an oral OraQuick In-Home HIV Test (HIV self-test; HIVST) kit [14] to support PrEP use during the lockdown. Participants received an orientation to the HIVST and reviewed instructions for use with the study staff. They were asked to send the study staff a photo or text of their HIVST results. We did not provide incentives to study participants for using the HIV self-test kits and returning their test results. Research assistants working remotely conducted participant follow-up interviews, including the COVID-19 module by telephone, to maintain physical distancing. Participants received protocol-specified compensation in Kenyan shillings equivalent to $5 for scheduled follow-up interviews.
