Record Number of Americans Tested for HIV
Date:11/30/2010

t state policies support routine HIV testing [and reduce] the barriers of lengthy counseling and lengthy informed consent," he said.

Health care providers need to do a better job of making testing more available, Mermin said.

Commenting on the report, Dr. Michael Kolber, professor and director of the comprehensive AIDS program at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, said "frequent testing is important."

Yearly testing is needed for those most at risk for HIV, he said. These include blacks, Hispanics, men who have sex with men and injection drug users.

But increasing testing rates is not easy, Kolber said.

HIV still carries a stigma, making testing a touchy area, Kolber said. "Because of the confidentiality associated with HIV, it's not considered the same as any sexually transmitted disease," he said.
