Abstract: Mother to child transmission of HIV (MTCT) remains a significant public health problem in Western Kenya. Male partner testing at the antenatal clinic (ANC) has been cited as a key strategy to reduce MTCT. The Western Kenya region has a high MTCT rate of 15% but low rate of testing for men at the ANC. We sought to describe the strategies for improving this low level of male partner testing. We conducted a facility-based cross sectional study in four health centres between February and April 2015.
