Failure to link to HIV/AIDS care and start antiretroviral therapy (ART) in a timely manner leads to poor health outcomes and greater HIV transmission. Innovative strategies that can be integrated into existing HIV testing programs are needed to overcome the bottleneck in linkage to care and increase the number of people on ART. This mixed methods study will test a rapidly deployable intervention to improve linkage to care.
