    The most significant findings of the public opinion survey, focus group discussions and in depth interviews are as follows: The study revealed strong support to offer universal HIV testing to pregnant women. There is little resistance from the general public, prenatal care health providers, pregnant women and their spouses/partners to the offer of HIV testing during prenatal care. While there is strong support for HIV testing, knowledge levels of the probability of vertical transmission or of the advantages of HIV testing during prenatal care are very low. 82 % know that HIV test is the only way to know if someone is HIV positive. 96 % say that ALL pregnant women should be tested for HIV AIDS as part of prenatal care visits, after they were told that there is medication available that can reduce the vertical transmission of HIV AIDS.
