The effectiveness of HIV post-test counselling in determining healthcare-seeking behavior.

Author information

Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA.


To examine the relationship between HIV post-test counselling and healthcare-seeking behaviors among HIV-positive individuals, we conducted patient interviews and medical chart reviews on 100 HIV-positive patients at a public hospital. When performed, HIV post-test counselling effectively encourages HIV-positive individuals to seek medical care, especially when performed by trained personnel. The consistent use of post-test counselling may improve care for HIV-positive individuals and should be encouraged at all healthcare facilities that conduct HIV testing.
