HIV testing among men who have sex with men (MSM) in China has not been well studied. We systematically reviewed studies addressing HIV testing among MSM in China and conducted a meta-analysis on testing indicators before and after the adoption of China’s National Plan for HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control among MSM in 2007. Rate of lifetime HIV testing (24 % [period 1—before adoption] vs. 47 % [period 2—after adoption]) and testing in the past 12 months (21 vs. 38 %) were both significantly higher in period 2. Rate of lifetime pre-test counseling showed a significant increase from period 1 to period 2 (72 vs. 90 %), while the figure for the past 12 months pre-test counseling did not change (51 vs. 50 %). More efforts are needed to promote frequent HIV testing among MSM.
