  Purpose
The BCPP study is designed to test the hypothesis that implementing an enhanced combination prevention package which includes provision of ART to all participants, regardless of CD4 count or HIV disease severity, will impact the HIV/AIDS epidemic by significantly reducing population-level, cumulative HIV incidence in a defined geographic area over a period of 3 years and will be cost-effective.

Condition Intervention Phase
HIV Other: Combination Prevention Other: Enhanced Care Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Botswana Combination Prevention Project: -Evaluation Protocol (Protocol #1): Research Design and Impact Evaluation -Closed Clinical Cohort Protocol (Protocol #3) Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation of Combination HIV Prevention Interventions in Rural and Peri-Urban Communities in Botswana

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Population-level, cumulative HIV incidence [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Population-level cumulative HIV incidence will be measured in a cohort of HIV-negative persons identified from a 20% sample of eligible households in the 30 study communities followed annually.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 2. Population-level uptake of HIV testing and counseling (HTC), ART, VL Suppression, male circumcision (MC), and PMTCT services [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Population-level uptake of each intervention will be measured in an annual survey of the 20% sample of eligible households in the 30 study communities and through analysis of routine program monitoring data.

  • Cost per additional infection averted [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Study Start Date: October 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Combination Prevention
  • Scale-up of HTC services during 2 annual HTC campaigns, with a target of >90% of adults having documentation of their HIV-infected status or documentation of an HIV-negative test in the preceding 12 months.
  • Scale-up of universal ART for all HIV-infected adults, with a target of >93% of HIV positive adults receiving ART.
  • Scale-up of retention in care and adherence interventions, with a target of ensuring that >95% of HIV-infected adults are virally suppressed with HIV-1 RNA <400 copies per ML..
  • Scale-up of linkage to MC services, with a target of ensuring >60% of HIV-negative men are circumcised.
  • Rapid strengthening of PMTCT services, with a target of >90% of women initiated on indefinite ART (Option B+) during pregnancy remaining in care and on treatment at 12 months post-delivery.
Other: Combination Prevention
Active Comparator: Enhanced Care
Enhanced Care Communities will receive guidance and improved technical support for quality management and data systems at all local clinics at which individuals receive HIV care and treatment.
Other: Enhanced Care
