DDP has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals from qualified contractors for the delivery of HIV counseling and testing in high minority and high poverty areas of the Eastern health region where testing services are also limited. All services shall utilize rapid test technologies, active linkage to care within 90 days for previously and newly diagnosed individuals, and optional partner elicitation services. Contractors may use a variety of methods to provide testing including testing in clinical or non-clinical settings, use of outreach or social network strategies to recruit individuals for testing, etc. Use of mobile vans or storefront testing services is encouraged to reduce transportation and other barriers to HIV testing. Services shall be targeted to Blacks and Latinos in high minority and high poverty areas with an emphasis on individuals with increased risk for infections including men who have sex with men (MSM), injection drug users (IDU), persons with combined MSM/IDU risk, persons who trade sex for drugs/money (sex workers), transgender persons, non-IDU substance users, the sexual partners of these populations, and high-risk heterosexuals.
