Strategy 2: Implement New Models for Diagnosing
HIV Infections Outside Medical Settings
Some persons infected with HIV do not have access to traditional
medical settings. CDC will create new program models to increase HIV
testing in high-prevalence, non-medical settings by:
Encouraging the use of the HIV rapid test.
Funding pilot projects in 2003, aimed at identifying the most effective models for HIV diagnosis and referral for medical and preventive care which CDC grantees can employ outside traditional medical settings.
Taking steps to assure that 2004 funding is used to support such models through CDC grant programs to health departments and community-based organizations.
