How do you get in the door for home-based HIV testing and counseling?

By Daniel C | 26 Jan, 2012

Home-based HIV testing and counseling (HBHTC) is very challenging, and I admire those who implement HBHTC programs for their courage and commitment.

AIDSTAR-One just published a case study called "Getting in the Door" (http://j.mp/yx0Hne) that reviews a number of HBHTC programs in Kenya. If you know of other information about "getting in the door," please share it in this discussion.

Thanks!
Daniel
