We developed a Motivational Interviewing (MI) training program for lay HIV counsellors in South Africa – branded the Thusa-Thuso program. We present the results of a pre- and post- pilot study to determine its impact on MI technical skills and qualitative assessment of the feasibility of a training-  of-trainers (TOT) scale-up among non-governmental (NGO) partners of the HIV treatment program in South Africa.
