Testing is a big part -- test, test, test. But it's not only that. There's trying to reach all different types of community environments with HIV information -- not just health departments or health settings. It could be churches. That's a big one, especially for certain populations. It would be great if we could get more spiritual leaders involved, and other community agencies, as well. Also, we need even more local pharmacies where people can go in on a daily basis. And then just educating people more and more on safer sexual practices, on the ways that HIV is transmitted versus the myths.
