'Testing Together' HIV Prevention Program to Expand in U.S.

A pilot HIV program that tests and counsels male couples will be rolled out nationwide, according to a statement by the MAC AIDS Fund, which provided the initial funding. Developed at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University and piloted in several major U.S. cities, “Testing Together” was modeled after a similar service in Africa. The university is transitioning management of the program to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which will expand it across the country to AIDS service organizations and health departments. Emory and CDC researchers estimate that one- to two-thirds of new HIV cases in the United States come from main partners among male couples. The program eventually will be adapted for use with all couples.
