NACCHO Report: Best Practices for Rapid Syphilis Testing in Outreach and Non-Clinical Settings

NACCHO is pleased to release Best Practices for Rapid Syphilis Testing in Outreach and Non-Clinical Settings. This report is based on lessons learned from an evaluation of rapid syphilis testing (RST) demonstration projects in four local health departments: Crater Health District (Virginia), Pima County Health Department (Arizona), Salt Lake County Health Department (Utah), and San Joaquin County Public Health (California).

The goal of this project was to better understand implementation practices for RST and identify optimal uses and considerations in non-clinical or outreach settings. This report outlines the lessons learned from the experiences of the four local health department sites and provides questions to consider regarding implementation of RST in outreach and non-clinical settings.
