Adolescent Wellness Visits in Tanzania to increase HIV testing and counseling

Project Objectives

In partnership with Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences, this Duke Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) funded pilot study assesses the feasibility and acceptability of implementing Adolescent Wellness Visits (AWV) within two government primary schools matched to nearby public health facilities. This is a mixed method study design composed of qualitative key informant interviews and a cross-sectional survey of the adolescents who participate in the intervention. This 1-year study will fill a critical void in understanding how to implement evidence-based adolescent-friendly health services in Tanzania.
