Increasing Access to HIV Testing: Impacts on Equity of Coverage and Uptake from a National Campaign in South Africa Increasing Access to HIV Testing: Impacts on Equity of Coverage and Uptake from a National Campaign in South Africa HOT

The Southern Africa Labour and Development Research Unit, with funding from the Programme to Support Pro-Poor Policy Development (PSPPD) used data from Wave 2 (2010/11) and Wave 3 (2012) of the National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS) to assess changes in the proportion of individuals 15 years and older tested for HIV. They compared the socioeconomic and demographic factors associated with HIV testing in each of the two waves to assess whether the national testing campaign ameliorated or exacerbated previously documented inequities in HIV testing.
