I hope the CDC launches a massive PR compaign to break down the stigma of being tested and what AIDS/HIV is today for America... There needs to be alot of money thrown at this in my mind.. What do you think?

I think its a noble effort on the part of CDC and I hope they approach this very carefully. I for one am thrilled that HIV/AIDS is on so many forefronts right now. From new meds / prevention / awareness etc... There was a time it had slipped off the American Agena. I am sure something good will come of this handled correctly... How often has this not been handled correctly?? I can count a few...

Big Pharma is going to love this!
Maybe some reforms and restructuring here may result?
Maybe goverment will get involved with Pharma?
Maybe goverment will take a active roll now in affordable meds for everyone. Certainly, with the uncovering of HIV infection due to this mandate will shake up the mix in some major way?? I hope so...

It's about time. I don't think we've even seen the tip of the iceberg yet on how bad the infection rate will be in the heterosexual community. Of those who are infected but don't know it...I think the %'s are probably worse in the heterosexual community than the homosexual community.

I belong to a few fitness web sites, and I'm still hearing words such as "I don't have to use a condom, I'm not a fag" coming out of the mouths (keyboards, actually) of young heterosexual men.

Making testing more likely and less of a stigma is definitely a step in the right direction.
