  1. Linkage and Retention in care, is measured using mean score (including 95% CI) given for both the intervention and control arm, and both at baseline and endline. N = 47 for the intervention arm at baseline, N = 40 for the control arm at baseline, N = 47 for the intervention arm at end line, and N = 28 for the control arm at endline. Difference between baseline and endline is statistically significant if p < 0.05. The bold text under p-value column show statistical significance
