Because HIV crosses the boundaries of sexual orientation, gender, age, and ethnicity, risk-based testing fails to identify many people with HIV. Therefore, CDC recommends HIV screening for everyone in all health care settings. The HIV Screening. Standard Care. program, which is a part of CDC's Act Against AIDS communication campaign, provides tools and resources for incorporating HIV testing into primary care settings.
To make printing easier, new versions of the campaign materials are now available in standard 8.5” x 11” sizes suitable for home or office printers. Existing versions of the campaign materials continue to be available to download, print, or order through CDC-INFO. A PDF symbol designates materials available for download or printing.
