For women delivered their most recent birth in a health facility, AIDTBET (V840A) indicates whether they were tested for HIV/AIDS after they arrived at the health facility but before the baby was born.
The related variable AIDTBEOFFER indicates whether the woman was offered a test at this time.
IPUMS-DHS users may also be interested in AIDTANCARE, a standard variable which indicates whether the woman was tested for HIV/AIDS as part of antenatal care.
