|Abstract:||© 2014, Joanna Briggs Institute. All rights reserved. The objective of this review is to determine the effectiveness of home-based Human immunodeficiency virus counselling and testing in reducing Human immunodeficiency virus related stigma and risky sexual behavior among adults and adolescents. As a secondary outcome, the review will also determine the effect of home-based Human immunodeficiency virus counselling and testing on clinical outcomes. Inclusion criteria Types of participants This review will consider studies that include adolescents between the ages 13 and 17 years and all adults aged 18 years and above, including those above 65 years of age. Types of interventions This review will consider studies that evaluate home-based Human immunodeficiency virus testing and counselling. For the purposes of this review, home-based Human immunodeficiency virus counselling and testing is defined as a door-to-door service that provides Human immunodeficiency virus counselling and testing at people’s homes provided by trained lay counsellors. Comparators The comparator will be free standing Human immunodeficiency virus counselling and testing service, or facility-based integrated Human immunodeficiency virus counselling and testing, or routine counselling and testing, mobile Human immunodeficiency virus counselling and testing, workplace Human immunodeficiency virus counselling and testing or all of these models of Human immunodeficiency virus counselling and testing delivery. Types of outcomes This review will consider studies that include the following outcome measures: Primary outcomes: • Human immunodeficiency virus related stigma (internalized stigma if test result is positive and personal stigma/discrimination towards people living with Human immunodeficiency virus). Internalized stigma assesses the extent to which an Human immunodeficiency virus infected individual feels stigmatized because of the disease. Personal stigma refers to stigmatizing attitude held by individuals within a group or community. Studies that measured one or more dimensions of stigma will be included. These dimensions may include negative attitude (shame, blame, and social isolation), discrimination (actual experience of stigma); and equity. All scales or indicators to assess Human immunodeficiency virus related stigma will be included. •Self-disclosure of Human immunodeficiency virus serological status (telling one’s serological status to partners, friends or family) if test result is positive.|
