Randomisation was to either the standard of care (SOC; with a clinic invitation letter to the male partner) or 1 of 5 intervention arms: the first arm provided women with 2 HIVST kits for their partners; the second and third arms provided 2 HIVST kits along with a conditional fixed financial incentive of $3 or $10; the fourth arm provided 2 HIVST kits and a 10% chance of receiving $30 in a lottery; and the fifth arm provided 2 HIVST kits and a phone call reminder for the women’s partners.,We investigated the impact of HIVST alone or with additional interventions on the uptake of testing and linkage to care or prevention among male partners of antenatal care clinic attendees in a novel adaptive trial.,The funder and sponsor had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript

Antenatal services in eastern and southern Africa have achieved near-universal HIV testing amongst pregnant women [ 10 ], providing an ideal opportunity for engaging male partners and extending benefits to the unborn child [ 11 ].,In Kenya, secondary distribution of HIVST kits by antenatal care clinic (ANC) attendees to their male partners increased uptake of HIV testing, although subsequent uptake of post-test HIV care and prevention services (“linkage”) was not optimally measured [ 7 ].,Assuming each cluster enrolled 40–60 women, and that 25% of male partners achieved the primary outcome in the SOC arm with a coefficient of variation (k) of 0.10 [ 12 ], 6 clusters per arm in stage 1 and 7 clusters per arm in stage 2 gave 80% power to detect a 15% absolute difference in proportions at a 20% and 5% significance level for stage 1 and stage 2, respectively. read more
