2.2 Serostatus Determination

Meeting the goals of the HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment Plan will require a greatly expanded effort to identify patients in need of care and treatment. All segments of the healthcare structure in Tanzania will need to have a role in this effort. Counselling and Testing capability needs to be established for different levels of the health care system including TB, MCH, OPD, and STI clinics as well as in-patient services. A key challenge of the Care and Treatment Plan will be both to increase the capacity for testing and counselling, and to sensitize the community to support those who want to know their serostatus.
