Interviewer instructions
If the respondent has been tested for HIV, we want to know whose idea it was to get the test. There are three options, so read the entire question before expecting an answer. Perhaps the respondent asked to be tested for HIV. Perhaps a health worker offered to test the respondent and the respondent accepted being tested. Perhaps the test was required for some reason.
Record the code corresponding to the response.
