This briefing outlines the objectives and activities of HIV Post-Test Clubs (PTCs), and, using a case-study from Kenya, looks at the lessons learned and at the challenges ahead. Post-Test Clubs are designed to raise community awareness about HIV/AIDS, and to advocate for community-based counselling and testing centres. The document calls for more openness about HIV status between members, a greater emphasis in HIV/AIDS self awareness, training for PTC members and regular monitoring and evaluation of club activities
