Medical authorities say Solomon Islanders are still reluctant to take voluntary HIV/Aids tests.
The Medical Superintendent of the National Referral Hospital, Doctor Silence Tovosia says it looks like would-be volunteers are wary about the confidentiality of the process.
Doctor Tovosia says the fear of breach of privacy is common and to be expected for such a new development.
The Ministry of Health and Services last month announced the establishment of a centre for voluntary HIV/Aids testing.
Solomon Islands has two registered and confirmed cases of HIV; a man and a woman.
