CDC Pilot Program Aims To Improve Access to HIV Testing
On Tuesday, CDC announced a two-year pilot project under which several U.S. pharmacy chains will offer no-cost, rapid HIV tests in a limited number of locations as part of an effort to make the tests more convenient and accessible. Pharmacists will be instructed to refer customers who test positive to a local health care provider for a blood test to confirm the results, as well as forÂ treatment and counseling.
