ABSTRACT

With the increase of awareness of mother to child transmission and ways to prevent

the transmission, voluntary counselling and testing has been found to be a useful

tool, and this work was therefore designed to study the factors that influence the

uptake of VCT among pregnant women in Ahmadu Bello University Teaching

Hospital, Zaria.

A cross-sectional study was conducted using the eligibility criteria in selecting the

221 ANC attendees and the total numbers of health workers in the ANC involved

with PMTCT (10) were taken as sample in the study. Information was obtained

through the use of interviewer- administered questionnaires.

The findings are as follows; a total of 221 ANC attendees were studied.94.6% was

aware of HIV/AIDS, 82.4% had knowledge of mother to child transmission and

81.4% had knowledge about PMTCT. In response to whether they were afraid of

HIV/AIDS, 89.1% said they were afraid of the disease because it was incurable.
