HIV Testing

ACTS (Advise, Consent, Test, Support) HIV Rapid System for Counseling and Testing Pocket Card

ACTS provides a simplified system for HIV counseling and testing that works when conducting HIV testing. The pocket guide highlights key information for easy reference and is the centerpiece of the ACTS system.

The ACTS approach includes two components: 

  1. A streamlined HIV counseling approach that can be delivered in as few as two minutes, so that providers can feasibly integrate HIV testing into routinely delivered care.

  2. A field-tested implementation process to facilitate routine HIV testing, including detailed instruction for buy-in, implementation planning, training and mentoring, and monitoring and evaluation.
