The recommendations for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) testing in the United States were recently revised. An important goal of these revisions is to reduce the proportion of individuals infected with HIV who are unaware of their infection. In the new guidelines, screening is recommended for all individuals aged 13–64 years in any health care setting, provided that they are notified that testing will be performed and do not decline testing. It was further recommended that individuals at high risk for HIV infection be screened annually. Through wider screening, the identification of persons with unrecognized HIV is expected to facilitate treatment and allow better targeting of HIV prevention strategies.
