The benefits of VCT on the HIV positive segment of the population are clear, i.e. psychosocial support, access to further resources etc. This study looks at the role of VCT in bringing about behaviour change in vulnerable populations. This study was conducted in Swakopmund, Namibia. Data was gathered on individuals voluntarily making use of VCT services. The study focuses on 221 clients who have attended VCT services, tested negative on their initial visit and are returning after a three month period for further counselling and testing. This study can assist when implementing similar programmes world wide. It can assist with program short comings and provide relevant background information in order to develop more targeted and effective HIV prevention programs.
