NASTAD published the third in its series of HIV testing toolkits, Data Driven Targeting and Recruitment, following Selecting a Strategy and Productivity & Yield Analysis. This toolkit can be used by health department and community based organization staff to refine their use of data to define focus populations and tailor their recruitment strategies to meet populations’ needs. It serves as a hands on field guide to support the implementation of CDC’s recently released guidance, Implementing HIV Testing in Nonclinical Settings: A Guide for HIV Testing Providers.

To complement the release of the toolkit, NASTAD is collaborating with several health departments and their partners to produce a series of webinars which will take a deeper dive into strategies for targeted testing and recruitment. Please join NASTAD, the Baltimore City Health Department and the Virginia Department of Health for two upcoming webinars on innovative practices in targeting and recruitment. Part one (April 18) will showcase Virginia’s home-based testing program and development of routine testing partnerships with Walgreens throughout the state. Part two (April 27) will feature Baltimore’s house/ball testing outreach and strategic utilization of patient and provider data to refine focus populations.
