Great strides have been in made in HIV prevention, but about 1 in 7 (14%) of the estimated more than 1 million people with HIV in America still don’t know they have HIV.
Key approaches include:
- Using the latest systems and technology to make HIV testing simple, accessible, and truly routine in health care facilities.
- Carrying out focused approaches that encourage more people who are at substantial risk for HIV to get tested for HIV more frequently.
- Implementing innovative technologies and programs, such as self-testing, to make testing more accessible.
Resources are available for the HIV prevention workforce to increase its capacity to test for HIV according to CDC guidelines and diagnose all Americans with HIV in the high-burden areas.
