AMA's New HIV Testing Guidelines Good for Public Health, Says AHF
Date:11/16/2007

hile the new AMA and CDC guidelines are welcomed steps to promoting HIV testing as a routine part of medical care, there is still a lot more work to be done toward fully incorporating HIV testing into routine medical care. AHF worked successfully this year with the California Medical Association and other groups to get California's legislature to pass landmark legislation overhauling the state's HIV testing process, which removed the requirements for cumbersome, written informed consent. Unfortunately, other states have rejected similar legislation intended to streamline and improve testing while still protecting an individual's rights. Despite the work that remains, these new AMA guidelines will definitely be good for the public health."
