Going door to door
To encourage people to get tested, we train health workers to go from door to door in villages and towns, testing people in their own homes. We have also successfully pioneered HIV testing in local community centres and bars.
People whose HIV tests are positive are referred to a nearby clinic. At the clinic, counsellors are on hand to explain what it means to be HIV-positive, and to talk people through the treatment.
Make testing easier
We need to encourage more and more people to find out their HIV status by making it easier for them to get tested. This way, people who are HIV-positive can start treatment before they become too ill, and the risk of spreading the virus to others will be reduced.
