Universal HIV testing is the gateway to HIV prevention and/or care services (e.g. pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for individuals at risk for HIV, and antiretroviral therapy (ART) for individuals newly diagnosed with HIV). It is vital for health care providers to be up-to-date on the latest HIV testing guidelines, the evolution of HIV testing technologies, and the meaning of test results. This webinar will zero in on “five things to know” to ensure your HIV testing services reflect current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for clinical settings. By the end of the webinar participants will be able to:
- Identify the relevance and importance of universal HIV testing in clinical settings as a High-Impact Prevention strategy
- Summarize CDC guidance that supports universal HIV testing within clinical settings
- Identify ways in which free CPN capacity building assistance (CBA) support could benefit your HIV prevention programs and/or service delivery model
