  • Data are presented as n/n (%), unless otherwise stated. #: calculated with correction for cluster sampling; : difference in “offered” and “acceptance” presented in the table is different, as the study considers “prior test” as an “offer”, as healthcare professionals did investigate the HIV status of patient.
