General information on HIV testing and counselling
HIV testing is a critical entry point to life-sustaining healthcare services for people living with HIV and AIDS. A great proportion of people living with HIV do not know their status, and many others present late to health facilities with symptoms of HIV illness. Service delivery models need to be expanded to provide testing in antenatal care, sexually transmitted infection clinics, family planning services, in-patient wards as well as client-initiated testing centres or voluntary counselling and testing (VCT) sites in the community and community outreach services including mobile services and testing in the home.
