I would say communities that are non-identifying -- people who don't identify as MSM [men who have sex with men] or transgender or gay or lesbian. We're really focused on targeted populations and targeted testing, so those non-identifying populations get overlooked. There are big "buzz words" like black MSM and youth, and so I feel like those are the things that people focus on -- but the non-identifying folks get left behind.
