Project Description

Men in sub-Saharan Africa who test HIV-positive continue to have poor antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation and retention outcomes. By developing and piloting a home-based ART intervention for men who use index HIV self-testing (HIVST) strategies, the project aims to provide additional knowledge on how to best reach men with HIV services across the testing and treatment continuum. The project has the potential to improve public health by engaging HIV-positive men across the cascade, a critical population to curbing the HIV epidemic.
