The health ministry in Kenya has launched a three-week campaign to encourage up to one million people to take an Aids test.

Ministry officials will go door-to-door in a bid to more than double the number of people checked since voluntary testing clinics were set up in 2004.

The latest drive has already met public resistance, in a country where taking a test can be equated to promiscuity.
