Mitigation and Prevention

This study evaluated the effectiveness of three interventions designed to increase testing among individuals in hard-to-reach communities and communities experiencing poverty in California using Community Health Workers/Promotoras and door-to-door community engagement. The results of the door-to-door strategies were compared to results from two other local testing sites, a fair ground and a church, as part of the evaluation.
