The objectives of the study are: (1) to identify key determinants (OAM-opportunity, ability and motivation) associated with VCT services and (ii) to obtain baseline information for monitoring key indicators, behavior change, OAM determinants and exposure to SFH interventions. The study is integral to the social marketing plan and strategic plan of SFH Zambia. The study is based on a representative sample of men and women aged 15-49 living in six selected provinces in Zambia. A three stage stratified cluster sampling procedure was used to select 1,300 households from which one man or woman aged 15-49 was to be interviewed. The questionnaire covered demographic information, VCT use, OAM determinants, and exposure to interventions. Four point Likert scales were used to provide a richer measure of OAM determinants. The measures for these variables were constructed based on prior research and were included in the analysis after conducting a reliability and validity check. Multivariate analyses were performed to identify significant determinants of VCT use. Simple frequencies were run on descriptive data to complete the monitoring table.
