Improved gonorrhea and chlamydia testing among men who have sex with men living with HIV through implementation of self-collected tests

We implemented self-collected gonorrhea/chlamydia testing in 17 medical centers in California serving men who have sex with men living with HIV. From 2012 to 2018, gonorrhea/chlamydia testing increased from 45.2% to 63.4%. Among those tested, rectal testing increased from 42.0% to 77.3%; pharyngeal testing increased from 31.0% to 79.9% (all, Ptrend < 0.0001).
