Study Examines Impact Of CDC Recommendations On HIV Testing In Southeastern U.S.

August 14, 2009

The Journal of General Internal Medicine published a study that examines the impact of CDC's 2006 guidelines recommending routine HIV screening on testing in a number of southeastern U.S. health centers that serve communities disproportionately affected by HIV. According to the study, "By integrating CDC-recommended guidelines and applying rapid test technology, health centers were able to provide new access to HIV testing," concluding, "Over time, we anticipate that HIV screening will become seamlessly integrated into primary care in these settings and that access will become more consistent for all patients" (Myers et al., August 2009).
