Routine HIV Testing – Why Wait? Get Tested.

CDC Recommendations for HIV Testing of Adults and Adolescents in Health Care Settings

HIV testing the risk is not being testedThe CDC estimates that 1 in 5 people infected with HIV are unaware that they are infected…and 54% of new sexually transmitted HIV infections in the US originate from HIV-infected persons who are unaware of their infection.

CDC recommendations urge providers to include HIV testing as a routine part of health care for all patients 13 – 64 years of age regardless of their risk. Routine HIV testing ensures that:

  • More people learn about their HIV infection
  • Those who learn about their infection will benefit from earlier access to treatment
  • There is a reduction in the risk of further transmitting HIV to others
