Service Delivery Approaches to HIV Testing and Counselling (HTC): A Strategic HTC Policy Framework. WHO. (2014)


The overall goal for HTC for a national programme should be to identify as many people as possible with HIV early in their infection and link them successfully to prevention, care, and treatment services, and to link those who test negative to prevention services. This framework has been developed to support countries to select the best combination of approaches to achieve this, identifying the models of HTC delivery that are most acceptable, most cost-effective, and best reach the communities most vulnerable to HIV. Countries should set targets for HTC to assure its role in the overall response to HIV, and they should monitor the uptake and coverage of testing for the populations they seek to serve so that they can adjust ongoing programmes appropriately.
