Routine HIV Screening projects at PHIMC have been critical to healthcare settings throughout Illinois as they seek to implement the 2006 recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that call for everyone age 13-64 to be tested for HIV as a routine part of healthcare. 

Care and Prevention in the United States (CAPUS) Demonstration Project and Category B are current projects dedicated to the expansion of routine, opt-out HIV screening in 40 sites throughout Illinois where populations most at risk reside. PHIMC provides direct oversight, management, monitoring, and evaluation of sites, including clinics, county jails, emergency departments, juvenile detention centers, and a methadone clinic. These projects also focus on supporting sites developing billing systems specific to routine screening.
