Combination Partner HIV Testing Strategies for HIV-positive and HIV-negative Pregnant Women

2019-10-16 10:39:13 | BioPortfolio


The overall objective of this study is to evaluate whether the addition of secondary distribution HIV self-test kits (SD-HIVST) to existing partner notification guidelines increases the proportion of male partners who access facility-based HIV testing services (HTS), when compared to the partner notification strategy alone


Pregnant women 18 years of age or older who enter antenatal care (ANC) at Chipata Level 1 Hospital in Lusaka, Zambia will participate.

HIV-positive and HIV-negative pregnant women will be randomized to one of two groups: partner notification alone or partner notification plus secondary distribution of HIV self-test kits (SD-HIVST). Women will return to the clinic 30 days after enrollment for an exit visit during which time information about their experience with the partner notification strategies will be collected. A random sample of women and health care workers will also participate in qualitative interviews.
