Summary

Provider-initiated HIV testing and counseling (PITC) of adults and children is an approach in which HIV testing is a routine standard of care for all patients presenting at health facilities. In Zambia, implementation of pediatric PITC services complements the ongoing national expansion of comprehensive PMTCT services and efforts to strengthen the linkages among antenatal, labour and delivery, postnatal and child health services. These guidelines, and the accompanying pediatric PITC training package and job aides (including counseling cue cards, wall charts, and supervisory tools) are intended to guide and support the nation-wide scale-up of PITC services in health facilities across Zambia.
