Getting in the Door: Home-Based HIV Testing and Counseling in Kenya
Home-based HIV testing and counseling (HBHTC) has emerged as a promising approach to meet the Kenyan government's challenge - that 80 percent of all Kenyans to know their HIV status by the end of 2013. By using rapid tests, HIV programs are able to offer HTC services to individuals and families within the privacy and convenience of their own homes. Furthermore, HBHTC provides an entry point at the community level for referrals and integration of other health messages, such as family planning, tuberculosis screening, and malaria prevention. This case study provides program planners, implementers, and decision makers with examples of strategies and approaches for ensuring quality in HBHTC. JSI/AIDSTAR-One, 2012.
