This study identified factors that determine VCT uptake among pregnant women attending ANC services in Addis Ababa City, Ethiopia in 2005. Cases were pregnant mothers who accepted VCT (n=202) and controls were pregnant mothers who refused VCT (n=200). Data was collected by counselor nurses working at the respective services. Women's perceived ability to cope with a positive result, accesses to medical care, fear of husband's negative reaction and the stigma and discrimination following a positive test result were key determinants of uptake of VCT.
