Methodology
Randomized controlled trial to evaluate adolescent girls and young women's uptake of HIV prevention, testing, and linkage for HIV to care services in a high-HIV burden African setting to optimize engagement in both the HIV prevention and care. This study will examine the uptake and yield of previously undiagnosed HIV infection of two strategies (community or home-based) and three strategies (self-testing, HIV testing services (HTS) in a home/mobile setting, or facility-based HTS) among female youth.
