Module 4: HIV Counselling & Testing: The counselling and testing module of this Toolkit focuses on incorporating client-centred counselling with the general Voluntary Counselling and Testing (VCT) topics. Community counsellors are encouraged to use the existing counselling and testing outline as a starting point rather than a fixed protocol. Counselling is important for families at times of serious illness, bereavement or loss. When a family has been through a crisis such as a hijacking or a particularly violent attack or robbery counselling is advisable. In the case of HIV/AIDS it is good for families to seek counselling as this will assist them in dealing with the problem.
