Washington DC Residents To Be Tested For HIV

According to a report of the Washington Post, the department of health of Washington, D.C.//, on Tuesday is planning to launch a campaign to subject every district resident, between 14years and 84years, to a test, to detect the presence of HIV antibodies.

The launching of the campaign, to be named “Come Together D.C. Get Screened for HIV,” will coincide with the 12th annual National HIV Testing Day.

Gregg Pane, the director of the. Health department said that, 80,000 free rapid HIV tests will be distributed at no cost, to area hospital emergency departments, doctor’s offices, community health programs, detoxification centers, substance abuse centers, and sexually transmitted disease clinics.

The city will spend about $8 million for the project. In addition to the rapid HIV tests, counselling and medical referrals, to those who test positive for HIV infection ,are to be included.

District health officials are hoping that the campaign will help to make HIV antibody testing a part of the regular medical care in the district, which ‘boasts’ of highest HIV prevalence rates in the country.

A report, released by the D.C.based Apple seed Center for Law and Justice in August 2005, points out that the city’s reaction to the AIDS pandemic has been rather inadequate.
