Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs): FFRDCs are operated, managed, and/or administered by a university or consortium of universities, other not-for-profit or nonprofit organization, or an industrial firm, as an autonomous organization or as an identifiable separate operating unit of a parent organization. A FFRDC meets some special long-term research or development need which cannot be met as effectively by an agency's existing in-house or contractor resources.

Description: The purpose of this research project is to develop feasible and effective models for using HIV point-of-care nucleic acid tests: (1) to improve pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) initiation and maintenance among persons at high-risk for acquiring HIV infection; (2) to improve viral suppression among persons diagnosed with HIV infection; and (3) to reduce the time between testing in community-based settings, linkage to HIV care and ART initiation.
