Funder: International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3 ie)

The HIVST study is a cluster randomized trial designed to determine the effect of HIV self-testing (HIVST) on uptake and outcomes of partner HIV testing. HIVST involves an individual collecting a specimen, performs a test and interprets the result by him/herself.

It is a two-arm cluster randomized trial being implemented in three public health facilities in Central Uganda that is; Entebbe Hospital, Mpigi HC IV and Nakaseke Hospital.

OraQuick (HIVST) kits which use Oral Mucosal Transudate (OMT) rather than blood were issued to pregnant 778 women randomized to the intervention arm to deliver to their partners and adult family members as opposed to 743 in the control arm who were encouraged to bring their partners.

Study partners are Makerere University School of Pblic Health, Medical University of South Carolina, Mildmay Uganda and Ministry of Health.
