Effect of a Congregation-Based Intervention on Uptake of HIV Testing and Linkage to Care in Pregnant Women in Nigeria (Baby Shower): A Cluster Randomised Trial

Document Type



Few effective community-based interventions exist to increase HIV testing and uptake of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in pregnant women in hard-to-reach resource-limited settings. We assessed whether delivery of an intervention through churches, the Healthy Beginning Initiative, would increase uptake of HIV testing in pregnant women compared with standard health facility referral.
