Title
Effect of a patient-centered phone call by a clinical officer at time of HIV testing on linkage to care in rural Kenya
Author
Abstract
In a randomized controlled trial, we tested whether a structured, patient-centered phone call from a clinical officer after HIV testing improved linkage to/re-engagement in HIV care. Among 130 HIV-positive persons, those randomized to the phone call were significantly more likely to link to care by 7 and 30 days (P=.04).
