HIV&AIDS Counselling and Testing (HCT) services have for long been seen as an intervention towards HIV prevention. The major objective of this study is to establish the Knowledge and Attitudes of youth towards HCT services in Lira district, Uganda. The study tried to establish the knowledge of the youth on HIV&AIDS and HCT services, to identify the attitudes of the youth towards HCT services and to find out the strategies for improving HCT uptake among the youth. A cross section study design was used to collect quantitative and qualitative data from 112 youth. Quantitative data was collected by the use of semi-structure questionnaire on youth between 15-24 years while qualitative data was obtained using key informant interviews and focus group discussions. The findings show that most youth are knowledgeable about HIV&AIDS and HCT services because they can identify modes of HIV transmission and where to obtain HCT services. Youth in school were more likely to have heard about HIV and AIDS compared to the youth out of school. The study shows that youth have both positive and negative attitudes towards HCT services.

This book on HIV counseling and testing (HCT) is an important resource for HIV prevention and care. The knowledge and acceptance of serostatus can facilitate behavioural change, enable access to strategies to reduce the risk of mother to child transmission of HIV, enable early access to care for HIV-related conditions, and help in making informed decisions about future pregnancies. This study was designed to find out the factors influencing uptake of Human Immuno-deficiency (HIV) counselling and testing (HCT) among pregnant women attending antenatal clinic in Sabon-Gari Comprehensive Health Centre, Zaria, Nigeria. A descriptive cross sectional survey was done. The fear of stigmatization is a factor militating against uptake of HCT. To improve the uptake of HCT services more innovative ethical and practical models of delivery should be developed and adopted. Improved awareness and education will reduce stigmatization of PLWHAS. This book is a must-read for all public health practitioners and maternal health care providers interested in working in Africa and in the tropics. It is also recommended for medical students and nurses who are seeking to broaden their knowledge on HCT.

HIV counselling and testing (HCT) is an entry point to know someone's HIV sero-status that will enable him/her to access prevention, care, support and treatment. Different models of HCT are conducted in Indonesia, according to its target population. However, to reach universal access, HCT need to be scaled up. The uptake of client-initiated counseling and testing approach that widely practiced and known as Voluntary Counselling and Testing, is below expectation. WHO has given recommendation for provider-initiated testing and counselling (PITC). There is a worldwide discussion on the weakness and strength of PITC. This discussion is divided between public health and human rights perspectives. For its implementation in Indonesian setting, some considerations need to be taken, particularly around the Three C's principles: consent, counselling and confidentiality. This thesis should be useful for government and non government organization, health service provider, policy maker or anyone else who may consider utilizing HIV counselling and testing.
