Background: Faced with the global challenge of the AIDS epidemic, the United Nations has set a "90-90-90" target to stop the epidemic by 2030. To do this, three objectives will have to be achieved: to have detected 90% of People Living with HIV (PLHIV) by 2020, to have put 90% of them on treatment and to have 90% of PHAs on treatment who have an undetectable viral load. Achieving the target of 90% of PLHIV detected requires rethinking and diversifying the existing screening offer, especially since screening is the entry point into the health care system and can be one of the main obstacles to achieving the objectives set. Purpose: To identify the contexts in which projects on salivary HIV self-testing have been developed among sex workers (TS) and men who have sex with men (MSM). Results: A review was conducted from several PUBMED databases, GOOGLE SCHOLAR, JSTOR RECHERCHE4LIFE (HINARI),COCHRANE, Institutional Sites and International Organizations (WHO, COQCANADA, MINISTERES, UNAIDS) over the past ten years to better understand their goals and impacts in the fight against the AIDS epidemic The different research equations submitted to the bibliographic databases, combined with additional manual research, have identified 76 documents composed of articles , books, reports, guides and recommendations of which Twenty-six (26) documents were selected for their relevance: 19 articles, 1 Report, 3 Recommendations, 1 Press Release and 2 Guidelines . Conclusion: In short, this literature journey has made it possible to highlight more specifically the wide variety of screening strategies, the contexts in which salivary self-testing could be complementary to the traditional screening offer.
