    The Planning and Implementing HIV Testing and Linkage Programs in Non-Clinical Settings: A Guide for Program Managers (hereinafter referred to as the Implementation Guide) was created to support planning, implementation, and evaluation of HIV testing and linkage services in non-clinical settings. The Implementation Guide was developed by ICF Macro Inc., which was acquired by ICF International, with funding made available by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC contract #200-2009-30981-0014-0002). The National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) assisted with the development of this guide under a subcontract with ICF Macro.

    To provide direction in the development of the Implementation Guide, an advisory board composed of 18 representatives of health departments and community-based organizations was convened. The advisory board met by conference call 13 times between October 2011 and June 2012, with each call addressing a specific content area of either the Implementation Guide or the Evaluation Guide. A 3-day, face-to-face working session was also held with seven representatives of the advisory board to work through resource gaps and refine the tools included in the guides. Advisory board members were asked to share resources and identify gaps in support necessary for the implementation of HIV testing and linkage, to care as well as to discuss current practices, challenges, and successes in the field.
