The study is a population-based household survey, which will be conducted in Mbongolwane and Eshowe areas in uThungulu District in northern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The survey area has urban (Eshowe) and rural (Mbongolwane) characteristics. The majority of participants will be black Zulu-speaking people aged 15 to 59 years, with varying levels of literacy.
The study will determine the burden of HIV in the population and HIV service coverage. This information will serve as a baseline from which to measure lowering of the HIV burden and increased HIV service coverage as a result of an ongoing intervention project in the district.
Community education and awareness activities will be done before the survey starts, and the key survey findings will be reported at community forums.
