Other ASOs/CBOs offer HIV testing based on identified risk (20%) or at their clients’ request (13%). • Rapid blood tests are the most common form of HIV testing (65%), followed by rapid oral tests (47%), and 4th generation lab based tests (40%). • A majority (58%) of ASOs/CBOs offer HCV testing, and only 18% offer routine HCV testing for the CDC-recommended baby boomer range (50-70 years).
