National HIV testing services: policy
HTS-Policy-28-July-final-copy The country has a generalised and maturing HIV epidemic, with the highest number of people (7.7 million) living with HIV in the world. The prevalence of HIV in South Africa remains high. This can be attributed to the rapid scale-up and success of the antiretroviral treatment (ART) programme. It is estimated that approximately three million people are on ART, making it the largest programme in the world. HIV counselling and testing (HCT) is now referred to as HIV testing services (HTS) to embrace the full range of services that should be provided together with HIV testing.
