Voluntary Counseling and testing (vct)
This is a standalone program which entails testing people to determine their HIV status, Counseling is offered and those needing further spiritual support are referred to the church. Support groups are formed within the Lutheran churches to offer social and emotional support to both the infected and affected. This helps in reducing the stigma associated with the disease. The VCT testing also accompanies the Outreach programs like medical camps for maximum impact.
