The purpose of this study was to find out the attitude towards voluntary counseling and testing among residents of Kakamega Municipality. The study was guided by a descriptive survey design and data was collected using questionnaires. Kakamega Municipality was chosen as the area of study. Simple random sampling technique was used to sample 200 clients. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics such as, frequency counts, means and percentages. The study revealed that majority of the residents in Kakamega Municipality had a positive attitude towards voluntary HIV counseling and testing and that women had a more positive attitude towards HIV testing than men. It therefore recommended that, seminars and workshops on HIV and AIDS be organized to inculcate the right attitudes towards HIV counseling and testing by those concerned.
