ABSTRACT
The article focuses on guidance statements on screening for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) released by the American College of Physicians (ACP) in 2009. It notes that such a test is aimed at identifying people who have undiagnosed HIV infection to provide treatment and prevent transmission. The ACP stresses the significance of screening to various individuals, including pregnant women and those who underwent treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. It says repeat testing is determined based on whether a patient has an ongoing risk of infection.
