Makerere University School of Public Health (N.D.).

This healthcare provider script and checklist for observing oral HIV self-testing (HIVST) are used in a Makerere University School of Public Health study of pregnant women in antenatal care in Uganda. This study aims to assess participants’ use of HIVST by observing self-testers and recording the procedures followed. The script is available in both English and Luganda. Program implementers may be interested in adapting this script to invite potential HIVST users to participate in a program. The supervision checklist would be especially useful for facility- or community-based programs in which a trained health care provider or peer observes the self-tester and records the procedures followed.
