    CuraHerbDistributor ( is attempting to sell online unlicensed home-use HIV test kits for use with urine, saliva and blood samples. It is important to note that there are currently no HIV test kits authorized for home use in Canada.
    CuraHerbDistributor's kits carry the "Home Aware" brand and have not been evaluated by Health Canada for safety and effectiveness. Accordingly, these kits may provide Canadians with false test results, such as a failure to indicate HIV in an infected individual, or indicate HIV when none is present.
    In addition, CuraHerbDistributor is also attempting to sell online a number of other test kits under the "Home Aware" brand. Health Canada has not licenced "Home Aware" tests kits for any of the following conditions indicated on the website, namely syphilis, trichomonas vaginalis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, hepatitis (B/C) or herpes simplex.
