The training was originally created as part of a cooperative agreement for opt-out HIV testing in family planning clinics, but can be applied to many related services (family planning, STD, primary care, OB/GYN, etc.). There is discussion of general cultural awareness, with an emphasis on African American and Hispanic cultures.
