Methodology
Two population-based surveys of 10 000 participants each were conducted at regional scale in the general population (16-59 years old) at the beginning (end of 2018) and at the end (2021) of the ATLAS project. These surveys used a methodological approach similar to Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) and designed to measure HIV testing coverage, the first 90 (proportion of people living with HIV knowing their status) and the second 90 (proportion of diagnosed people living with HIV being on anti-retroviral therapy) at regional and at sub-regional levels. The questionnaire also documented sexual behaviours, testing history, HIV self-testing (HIVST) knowledge and use, linkage to care and to ART. All HIVST delivery channels were implemented at full scale in Gbokle–Nawa-San Pedro region in Cote d’Ivoire. It is a region with one of the highest HIV prevalences (4.7%), high incidence and a very low estimated first 90 (around 20%).
