The second component involves accelerate d ART initiation for eligible patients that involves two counseling sessions and ART initiation within the first week after linkage to care. The third component uses short-message service (SMS) appointment reminders sent from a central server. SMS reminder s are sent 3 days prior to the appointment and after a missed appointment. The fourth component consists of a health education package that includes health information and supplies such as soap, a toothbrush, and a pillbox. The fifth component involves financial incentives of modest amount (i.e., prepaid mobile phone card valued at US$8) that are provided to reimburse patients for expenses or lost wages or transportation costs for clinic attendance .
