Key Players: Community-based Organizations
CBOs provide an array of services targeted to special populations in the communities they serve and provide well-known, trusted resources to their communities. They can complement and enhance hospital-based services with constituent-tailored services and can meet the specific and longer-term care needs of patients with HIV. When competition for HIV testing funding is a concern, hospitals and CBOs may explore opportunities together to leverage these scarce resources. For example, they may enter into a contractual arrangement to share or deploy a pool of testing staff to their respective sites.
