The methodology and sources of information used for
creating this guide
The document has been drawn up using the data collection of various work packages of the HIV-
COBATEST project and an analysis of existing literature. Regarding the HIV-COBATEST project, we have used

Information collected from a quantitative study conducted to gather data on National AIDS policies and on the way community-based voluntary counselling and testing services are run in
In conclusion, this guide

Is not a theoretical document but an evidence-based guide stemming from various CBVCT practices. Is not a guideline to define or label CBVCT projects. Is not another guide on how to do quality testing but a source of information where community-based aspects are highlighted. Is a tool to understand better how CBVCT works, how it can be implemented and improved. It inspires rather than dictates. Is not a catalogue but a collection of key features that can be adapted according to local situations, targeted populations and CBVCT organizations

9 practice. A survey was administrated to the HIV national and/or regional managers and to representatives of some CBVCT programs in each country, in order to have insights on the various national contexts. Thus, it was possible to have an overview of the HIV testing and counselling situation in general and from the point of view of the CBVCT programs and services. Special attention was given to the comparison between what is known by the National/Regional Focal Points (NFPs) and what is done/known concretely by CBVCT programs and services.

Information was collected from a qualitative study conducted in 8 participating countries (The Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Slovenia and Spain. Focus groups with
CBVCT clients and semi-structured interviews with CBVCT coordinators were conducted by a core group of field-coordinators (one per participating country) which was setup in order to guarantee linkage with all these centers, to moderate the focus groups and to perform the interviews.

The document Core indicators to monitor CBVCT for HIV Guidelines for CBVTC services defines a standardized approach to monitoring and evaluating (ME) CBVCT activities. For some
CBVCT services such ME processes will provide valuable information in order to improve their services and to enable them to compare their performance with other similar services. Besides, ME can also be a useful means fora) advocating for broadening the offer of CBVCT services in addition to formal health care systems, b) providing evidence of their activities, c) demonstrating their value when seeking funding. Thus, the data collected by the HIV-COBATEST project provide key elements on the way CBVCT services are run and on the national regulation and contexts in several European countries. This information has allowed us to portray the pros and cons of CBVCT: what works, what is appreciated by CBVCT clients, what is important to take into account in the implementation and improvement of CBVCT programs. Since the objective of the HIV-COBATEST project is not to establish a theoretical guide but to gather concrete elements in order to provide stakeholders with some assistance for the successful implementation of CBVCT services or improving existing services, this document focuses on those elements which appeared indispensable and crucial for successful implementation but, specially illustrates those issues that deserve special attention and that must be decided on according to the very particular context where the CBVCT is being conducted (target population, national or regional organization, medical staff or peer educators. To complete the data from the HIV-COBATEST project and to build this guide, ab review of existing
