This pilot study aims to assess the feasibility of VCT-based strategies to promote linkage to care at a Comprehensive Care Center. Intervention strategies include CD4 count testing at the time of a positive HIV result at a VCT and follow-up-home-based counseling to reinforce the importance of seeking ongoing HIV/AIDS care and evaluation for initiation of antiretroviral therapy.
