How the Partnership with Pharmacies Works

CDC’s ICATT program selects pharmacy testing sites, monitors pharmacy testing, and engages states to optimize testing activities. The ICATT pharmacy partners schedule appointments, register patients for testing, collect patient specimens, process tests, and report test results to individuals and public health departments. 

ICATT Monitors Sites and Partners

ICATT program staff members conduct routine assessments to monitor testing, improve quality, and close testing sites that are no longer needed.
