dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study assesses the quality of Voluntary Counselling and Testing or HIV Counselling and Testing (VCT/HCT) services among antenatal clients/patients at three health facilities in the Tshwane Region (Pretoria), as a service rendered for the prevention of mother to child transmission (PMTCT). It also examines the experiences of those who render this type of a service- lay counsellors at these health facilities. While the survey results show a remarkably high level of access to VCT/HCT amongst pregnant women, it could be proven that the quality of services they get are not as satisfactory as expected. A total of 150 clients/ patients, and 15 lay counsellors were invited to participate in the survey. At the end of the survey period, which ran from 21 to 25 September 2009, it was found that a total of 150 clients/ patients, and a total of 15 lay counsellors responded by completing the survey. This represents a return of 100%.en
dc.description.abstractAFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Hierdie studie assesseer die gehalte Vrywillige Voorligting- of MIVvoorligtingdienste (VCT/HCT) onder voorgeboorte-kliënte/-pasiënte by drie gesondheidsfasiliteite in die Tshwane area (Pretoria), as diens wat gelewer word ter voorkoming van moeder tot kind oordraging (PMTCT). Die studie ondersoek ook die ervarings van diegene wat hierdie tipe diens lewer – lekevoorligters binne hierdie gesondheidsfasiliteite. Waar die studie ‘n merkwaardige hoë mate van toeganklikheid tot dié VCT/HCT onder swanger vroue aantoon, kan daar insgelyks bewys word dat die gehalte dienste wat hulle ontvang, nie so bevredigend is as wat verwag word nie. ‘n Totaal van 150 kliënte/pasiënte en 15 lekevoorligters is genooi om aan die opname deel te hê. Teen die einde van die opnametydperk, wat van 21 tot 25 September 2009 gestrek het, is bevind dat ‘n totaal van 150 kliënte/pasiënte en ‘n totaal van 15 lekevoorligters gereageer het deur aan die opname deel te neem. Dit verteenwoordig ‘n rendement van 100%.af
