  • Description:
    HIV testing is essential for improving the health of people living with HIV and helping to prevent new infections. CDC estimates that 13 percent of people infected with HIV in the United States are unaware of their infection – more than 161,200 people. As many as 50,000 new HIV infections occur each year, and many of these are transmitted by people who do not know they are HIV-positive.

    CDC recommends all adolescents and adults get tested at least once for HIV as a routine part of medical care, and that gay and bisexual men and others at high risk be tested more frequently. CDC is working to increase testing in a wide range of settings – outside of the medical system – among people at higher risk for HIV infection.
