HIVST in West Africa: ATLAS Methodology and Results for Developing or Optimizing HIVST Supporting Tools

To support HIVST users in each country, the project developed supporting tools to promote the correct use of HIVST kits, accurate interpretation of results, and linkage to care. A specific methodology including cognitive and recurring interviews have been used to develop/adapt (and validate with national partners) HIVST IFUs (inserting Hotline logo), a demonstration video (translation), and an additional leaflet to be distributed with HIVST kits. Proposed resources contain:

  • A result analysis report on cognitive and recurring interviews conducted
  • 2 technical and methodology documents for conducting cognitive and recurring interviews (including sampling, recruitment, data collection and analysis methods, questionnaires)
  • A summary sheet presenting the results of cognitive and recurring interviews
