Improving uptake of HIV testing services and linkages to care after diagnosis in Kenya
Although uptake of HIV testing has increased in Kenya, men are less likely than women to get tested. It is important to understand facility and individual factors related to HIV testing as well as how and why certain men elect to be tested. This could provide important insights in designing strategies to improve uptake and expansion of HIV test services (HTS). This report summarizes findings from two complementary research activities Project SOAR conducted at HTS centers in Nairobi City County to understand the context and factors that influence the uptake of HTS and improve continuum of services among newly diagnosed HIV-positive clients.
