Community Pharmacies Are Effective Locations for Rapid HIV Testing
Date:8/6/2013

V in treatment is considered good. The immune system of someone who is HIV-negative person would have a CD4 count of 700-1,000. CD4 counts for those who are HIV positive indicate the person has AIDS.)

"In many urban areas, community pharmacies play an important role," said Dr. Calderon. "While New York pharmacies are not currently allowed to provide blood tests or medical care, they do administer vaccines and provide wellness help. Many area residents view the pharmacists as trustworthy and more accessible than doctors and go to them for advice."

"Our results demonstrate that pharmacies can effectively supplement the current healthcare system for HIV testing, especially in some of our lower-income communities" said Dr. Calderon. "They could become an important component of an extended network for informing more people to their HIV status and bringing them into care."

Dr. Leider is associate professor of clinical medicine at Einstein. Dr. Cowan is assistant professor of emergency medicine at Einstein. In addition to Drs. Calderon, Leider and Cowan, authors on the paper include John Y. Rhee, B.S., and Christopher Brusalis, B.A., at Jacobi.

New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene for HIV Priority Population Testing and Gilead Sciences, Inc underwrote the grant for this project. The authors report no conflicts of interest.
