CDC Releases Vital Signs Report on HIV Testing
This month’s U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vital Signs features HIV infection, testing, and diagnosis. The report indicates improvement in the overall frequency of HIV testing, and that about 85 percent of people with HIV in the country know they have the virus. 15 percent of people with HIV, however, do not know they have the virus and are responsible for about 40 percent of new HIV infections.
The Vital Signs report details action items for public health practitioners, local health departments, health care providers, and governments, among others. For more information and to view the report, visit here.
