3rd Funding Cycle Development Award
Project Start Date: 7/1/2007
Project End Date: 6/30/2008
Award Amount: $44,536
Project Goal Statement: Delay in diagnosing HIV infection leads to increased morbidity and mortality. Universal screening will improve outcomes but those at highest risk are still less likely to be tested. Social networks testing can improve identification of HIV positive patients and deserves further study.
