Universal HIV and AIDS Intervention for Counseling and Testing (UHAI-CT)

OVERVIEW

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Universal HIV and AIDS Intervention for Counselling and Testing (UHAI—CT) program was designed to increase Tanzania’s access to high-quality HIV counselling and testing services, develop health care provider’s skills in delivering, high-quality HIV counselling and testing services, strengthen the links between counselling and testing, prevention and care and treatment services, and assist the Government of Tanzania with data collection and management of HIV counselling and testing.

As a partner to JHPIEGO, the project’s lead agency, T-MARC developed educational materials, managed outreach activities, strengthened interpersonal communications, and trained civil society organizations working with the target populations to promote HIV counselling and testing services.

Project Highlights

  • Supported stakeholders to develop Behavior Change Communication (BCC) messages on issues pertaining to Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and Violence against children (VAC), including the benefits of eliminating or minimizing violent acts.
  • Developed communication and promotional materials designed to support the UHAI-CT program activities including t-shirts, khangas, polo shirts, round stickers, round badges, posters, booklets, banners, buntings, caps, key rings and comic booklets that promoted counselling and testing.
  • Developed the “Tupime Pamoja!” (Let’s test together) campaign, which was implemented in Mara, Mwanza, Mbeya, Rukwa and Katavi regions, encouraging couples to attend voluntary counselling and testing together and most importantly, to create awareness of issues and effects of discordance among couples.
