dc.description.abstract Home-based HIV counselling and testing (HBCT) is a wayt to provide confidential HIV testing in a person's home. As home-based testing has not yet been evaluated on a wide scale in Kenya among adult individuals [over age 15], this project is designed to assess in rural Kenya 1) overall acceptance rates and variables that predict differential acceptance rates of home-based HIV testing, 2) reasons for refusal of home-based testing, and 3) barriers to seeking treatment for people who are HIV positive. en_ZA
