This workshop will be presented using a combination of lecture and discussion. We will describe the implementation of a novel HIV testing strategy at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), which provides driver’s license and automobile tag services to more than 150,000 Washington, DC, residents annually, and the recent replication of the program model at an Income Maintenance Center (IMC) in Washington DC, the Government office that provides residents with public benefits including food stamps, financial assistance, and health insurance. We will present the primary goals of the program and describe FMCS’s Promote, Offer, Test, and Link to Care (POT-Link) implementation model and identify barriers to implementation. We will present data describing the HIV testing outcomes from the programs’ inception in October 2010 to the present. We will share data from a sample of individuals who declined testing about their reason for refusal.

Learning Objectives:

  • Key components of the integrated HIV testing model that is appropriate for non-clinical public service siteswill be described.
  • Identify the key factors in identification and selection of a non-clinical public service HIV testing site.
  • Identify barriers to the implementation of HIV testing in non-clinical settings.
