Timely HIV Detection in Outpatient Clinic Users in Montevideo

Aim

A key aim of the project is to improve access to diagnosis and care for PLHIV. This will be carried out through a series of workshops educating medical staff on the importance of providing rapid HIV tests to all clinic users, especially at risk populations. The ultimate goal is to increase testing and as a result, diagnosis of HIV. This should also reduce the numbers of late diagnosis. The project also seeks to increase awareness of HIV services offered.
