Portugal: HIV Tests to Be Available in Health Centers

January 25, 2010

In Portugal, where HIV testing is now performed in private clinics, specialized centers, and hospitals, rapid-result tests will soon be available in health centers across the country. "It is a real possibility and is already being implemented on the ground, people are being trained," said Henrique Barros of the office of the National Coordinator for AIDS/HIV. Barros said he hopes making the test more widely available will lead more people to take it, and he is looking to add more mobile testing units to the current fleet of three. Barros emphasized that counseling before and after testing remains vitally important.
