At this time, do you know of a place where you can go to get such a test to see if you have the AIDS virus? A. If tested for HIV during antenatal care: Other than at the antenatal clinic, do you know of a place where you can go to get a test to see if you have the AIDS virus?
Note that some women will be asked HA18 and others will be asked HA18A, but the same set of response codes will be used to indicate the woman's response. Specifically, women who have not been tested for HIV during antenatal care ('No' marked in HA14) or any other time ('2' circled in HA15) are asked HA18. For women who have been tested for HIV during antenatal care, you should ask HA18A. Even if the respondent has been tested for HIV during antenatal care, we still ask this question, since the original testing place may no longer be accessible to the respondent. Circle the code corresponding to the response. When you have finished asking HA18 or HA18A, thank the woman. Check whether she is the mother or primary caretaker of any children that live with her and that are under the age of five by checking the Household Questionnaire, column HL8, for the woman's line number. If so, start interviewing her with the Questionnaire for Children Under Five for those children. If this woman is not the mother or primary caretaker of any children under five in the household, check if there is another eligible woman residing in the same household. If so, go on to administer the Questionnaire for Individual Women to the next eligible woman. Continue until you have completed questionnaires for all eligible women and children in the household.
