CBVCT implementation among and with populations
CVBCT promotion and participation of communities in program
Social and community mobilization is necessary in order to guarantee the acceptance, the appropriateness to needs and the implementation of community-based testing. This mobilization could be created through dialogue with relevant stakeholders, community organizations and key community leaders on multiple topics Individual and collective benefits of testing

Response to community needs by existing testing offers and the consideration of needs by public health policies. Identification and emphasis of existing community knowledge and resources. The capacity of the community to use CBVCT programs as away to fight against stigma. The possibility and the desire to participate in a direct way in the planning, implementation and evaluation of CBVCT projects. Before implementing the programme, it could be interesting to build a network and/or a collaborative platform with community leaders and institutional, local and regional, partners. The aim would be to create a synergy and a partnership to support CBVCT programmes. Different forms of participation and commitment are possible, for example, as members of the steering committee or the community advisory board. Community involvement would be helpful to identify the potential opponents and obstacles of the project, to analyze health needs and to have a better knowledge of the context in which CBVCT services will be implemented. The community must be associated to assess the adequacy of the implementation strategy (particularly regarding communication) and to evaluate the effects and the quality of the program.
Finally, community involvement includes the participation of peer educators. Promotion of the service by community stakeholders is an important factor of CBVCT’s success. Thus, community stakeholders will ensure their presence in the community and will increase acceptance from community members (e.g. gay bar owners are sometimes helpful, allowing the dissemination of leaflets and encouraging outreach activities.
Information about the individual and collective benefits of testing must not lead to any (moral) pressure to get tested and/or treated. CBVCTs are committed to non-judgemental, non-stigmatizing and client-centered approaches in counselling and testing. Therefore CBVCTs support the right of (potential) clients to make a free and individual choice of getting tested (and if necessary of starting treatment)
