About 70% of this population lives in Third World countries and more specifically in sub-Saharan Africa; therefore, the Kenge Health Zone is no exception to this tragedy. This study sought to determine the utilization rate of Voluntary Counseling and Screening (VCT) services to describe the factors associated with the low utilization of these services in the health zone Kenge and to explore relationships between these variables. The study used the quantitative Cross-sectional survey method with correlative explanatory statements to identify the factors inherent in the rejection of VCT services on a homogeneous sample of 422 respondents. The results indicate that the proportion of people who previously used VCT services in the Kenge health zone in 2016 would be 14 per thousand (14%). This utilization rate of VCT services would be lower than the national average of 1.5 % in 2013, 3.1% in 2014 and 3% in 2015 while the coverage rate for CVD services is 22.7%. In addition, there are five VCTs on a set of 23 health training courses (FOSA). Finally, there is a significant relationship between the rate of VCT use in the Kenge Health Zone and socio-economic and organizational factors, including marital status, age, household size, and knowledge of community health. where the VCT is located. Based on these results, it can be concluded that HIV prevalence is above the national average in the Kenge Health Zone. It could be closely linked to the low use of VCT services.
