Quality Assurance Guidelines on HIV Voluntary Counselling and Testing Services in Community Settings
July 2009, 29 pp

"In recent years, there is an increasing trend of HIV tests being performed by peer colleagues in community settings. Some members of the target communities prefer to be tested in venues which they frequently visit. HIV rapid tests have become increasingly popular as clients prefer to know their HIV status at the point of testing. In order to benchmark the quality of these VCT services, CFA undertook to develop a set of guidelines by taking reference from the latest available scientific literature and customizing them for the local situation. Community organizations or NGO performing conventional HIV tests in a clinical setting can also refer to these guidelines as well as clinical VCT guidelines of service providers in the public sector."
