What is its purpose?
The indicator measures the proportion of women aware of where they can get an HIV test – an essential pre-condition for receiving effective treatment (if required) and preventing mother-to-child HIV transmission.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with a representative sample of women aged 15 – 49 years:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTIONS (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Q1: Do you know of any place where you can get an HIV test?
A1: yes / no
(ask only if the previous answer is YES)
Q2: Where exactly is that place?
A2: the respondent knows a specific place / the respondent does NOT know a specific place
Calculate the indicator’s value by dividing the number of respondents who know a specific place by the total number of interviewed respondents and multiplying the result by 100.
Disaggregate the data by the respondent’s location and age.
1) Always verify whether the respondent really knows a specific place and does not just say, for example, (somewhere) “in a district town” or (somewhere) “in a hospital”, without knowing a concrete place.
