Table 2 Estimated relative risks for selected covariates from simple multinomial regression and multiple multinomial regression of couple acceptance of CHCT only or CHCT and CFP counseling and odds ratios from simple logistic regression for acceptance of either or both interventions by sex

From: Pilot study of home-based delivery of HIV testing and counseling and contraceptive services to couples in Malawi

Covariate Intervention accepted (reference = none) and sex for covariate studied
  Accept CHCT only (n = 94) Accept both CHCT and FP (n = 48) Accept either or both (odds ratios from binomial logistic regression)
