The Kansas City Free Health Clinic of Kansas City, Mo., plans to buy a specially equipped van to offer rapid HIV antibody tests for members of racial and ethnic minorities who have been reluctant to seek HIV testing. The program is funded by a $669,000 grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of three new federal grants for HIV/AIDS programs. "We hope to start testing by the end of the year," said Holly Buckendahl, the clinic's director of community services. "We'll be visiting parks, health fairs, festivals, areas where there are high-risk activities."
