Counselling and testing for HIV/AIDS among TB patients in the Free State
Centre for Health Systems Research & Development
TB patients uptake of HIV counselling and testing (HCT) is affected by a wide variety of health systems/ services-related and patient/community-related factors. This research set out to explain comparatively low rates of HCT among TB patients in Lejweleputswa and Thabo Mofutsanyana Districts in the Free State Province. By interviewing patients, community health workers, front-line providers and health managers this fact-finding research sought to identify and illuminate barriers to and facilitators of uptake of HCT by TB patients.
