New publication from the Horizons Program
Welcome to On the Horizon (OTH), an electronic news capsule from the Horizons Program that features brief descriptions of Horizons publications and events, along with links for more information.
Should voluntary counseling and testing counselors address alcohol use with clients? Findings from an operations research study in Kenya
A Horizons study shows that many clients are affected by alcohol as a result of their own or their partners' drinking; therefore, VCT providers have an important role to play in discussing alcohol use with clients and in making referrals as appropriate. But the study also shows that VCT providers frequently miss the opportunity to discuss alcohol use in the context of HIV.

Horizons is a global operations research initiative designed to: 1) identify and test strategies to improve HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and care programs; and 2) disseminate research findings and promote their utilization with the aim of replicating and scaling up successful interventions.
Horizons is implemented by the Population Council in partnership with the International Center for Research on Women, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, PATH, Tulane University, Family Health International, and Johns Hopkins University. These studies and articles are made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The contents are the responsibility of the Horizons Program and do not necessarily reflect the views of USAID or the United States Government.
