Access Free Campaign Materials

HIV Screening. Standard Care.

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.

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.


This poster highlights the importance of HIV screening for everyone. It is for patient waiting areas and/or exam rooms.
