The objective of this proposal is to develop an optimal testing strategy for HCV and HIV in high prevalence settings, such as detoxification centers with a large proportion of young injection drug users. The latest venipuncture testing will be compared to rapid finger stick testing for HCV and HIV. Outcomes for each strategy among individuals admitted at a short-term drug detoxification center will be determined.
