Periodic HIV Index Case Testing: A Worthwhile Approach to Reach “The Unreached” in the Journey to Epidemic Control


With over 90% of people living with HIV (PLHIV) already diagnosed in Zambia (MoH-ZAMPHIA, 2019), it has become increasingly difficult to reach those who remain untested and undiagnosed. The JSI-implemented USAID DISCOVER-Health Project embarked on a robust initiative to identify potentially untested PLHIV.  Between July and August 2021, USAID DISCOVER-Health offered index testing to clients who were already on treatment and had initially undergone index case testing, but had since found new sexual partners. This abstract was shared at the AIDS 2022 Conference.
