Feasibility of Home-Based HIV Counselling and Testing and Linking to HIV Services among Women Delivering at Home in Geita, Tanzania: A Household Longitudinal Survey. BMC Public Health, 19(1), 1758.

AbstractBACKGROUND: Substantial number of women who deliver at home (WDH) are not captured in prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services. This delays HIV infection detection that negatively impacts endeavours to fight the HIV pandemic and the health of mothers and children. The study objective was to determine the feasibility of home-based HIV testing and linking to care for HIV services among WDH in Geita District Council, Tanzania.
