Acceptability and feasibility of serial HIV antibody testing during pregnancy/postpartum and male partner testing in Tororo, Uganda. Our objective was to determine whether serial HIV testing during pregnancy and the postpartum period as well as male partner testing are acceptable and feasible in Tororo, Uganda. This was a prospective study of pregnant women at the Tororo District Hospital (TDH) Antenatal Clinic. Patients presenting for routine antenatal care were asked to participate in a serial HIV testing integrated into standard antenatal and postpartum/child immunization visits, and to invite their male partners for HIV testing.
