III. COOPERATION PRIORITIES

3.4. HIV Voluntary counselling and testing (VCT) — Assesment of VCT and STI offers

In the frame of BORDERNET I we worked out instruments, which help to analyse the profiles and scope of reach of the offers for HIV test counselling (VCT) and STI diagnostic. Those instruments should be applied in the assessment survey defining the structures of offers in the participating regions. The assessments will be conducted in close cooperation with the sentinel surveillance and will aim also practical influence through the feedback of the stock of knowledge being gained.

 

The HIV test-counselling should be improved through development of universal quality standards and an extended scope of reach targeted at persons with risk behaviour.
