dc.description.abstract Lottery incentives have long been an important strategy to encourage health screening, including HIV testing. In South African companies, it is currently one of the strategies employed to motivate employees to participate in workplace HIV testing. Based on a recent research study conducted in South Africa and drawing on multiple previous studies in the field, this policy brief concerns the key elements that contribute to the effectiveness of lottery incentives to encourage HIV testing and how these elements are aligned with current labour and health policies. From this research, we summarise standards of implementation and describe the necessary environment required for lottery incentives to be effective. Finally, we make policy recommendations regarding the promotion and implementation of lottery incentives to support HIV testing uptake in workplaces. en
