CIRA Talk: "Interrupting HIV stigma in the household using home HIV testing offers in South Africa and Uganda"
This talk, presented by Dr. Luke Davis (Yale School of Public Health) and Dr. Mari Armstrong-Hough (NYU School of Global Public Health), will focus on a social-behavioral intervention that seeks to mitigate HIV-related stigma during offers of home-based HIV testing in South Africa and Uganda. The intervention aims to "re-norm" HIV testing in the home by (1) optimizing the order of test invitations to establish testing as the normative choice, (2) framing testing as a prosocial behavior, and (3) offering a less invasive oral test. We hypothesized that this approach would reduce perceived stigma and improve uptake of testing. In this talk, we will share preliminary data on this novel approach to offering home HIV testing in households undergoing contact investigation for TB, and on its effects on test uptake and perceived stigma.
