Re: What are the steps in post HIV test counseling

Voluntary testing means that the individual has to give their consent for an HIV test. No one may be forced to do an HIV test counselling.

HIV testing cannot be done without counselling. Counselling is the process of giving professional counselling before (pre- counselling) and after (post-counselling) the HIV test.

Please find the below attached file for details about the HIV test counseling:

HIV test counseling


Pre-test information may be provided in a number of ways:

One-to-one, face-to-face, etc.
group information + brief individual risk assessment
group information only
couples + individual
couples together
de-linked community counselling (in PWID settings, encouraging self-referral), or
phone link/hotline pre-test counselling in the community linked to a testing laboratory.

When recommending HIV testing and counselling to a client attending services for PWID, the care provider should, at a minimum, provide the client with the following information:

The reason(s) the test is being recommended (symptoms or the presence of risk behaviour)
The clinical benefits of testing (access to ART, OI prophylaxis) and the potential risks (discrimination or abandonment)
The services available in the case of negative and positive results (including the availability of ART)
That the result will be treated confidentially and shared only with involved care providers
That the person has the right to decline the test
That declining an HIV test will not affect the person’s access to other services
That, if the test result is positive, disclosure to the person’s contacts who may be at risk is encouraged.
