<i>Infectious Disease News </i>lists top stories for National HIV Testing Day
June 27, 2017

Today on National HIV Testing Day, recognized each year on June 27, the CDC is promoting this year’s theme, “Test Your Way. Do It Today,” to remind patients that there are more ways than ever to get tested. Whether at a clinic, local organization, health care provider’s office, testing event, or at home, the CDC is urging Americans to check their HIV status.

According to the CDC, everyone aged 13 to 64 years should be tested for HIV at least once as part of routine care, and high-risk individuals should be tested at least once a year. Men who have sex with men (MSM), however, may benefit from more frequent testing every 3 to 6 months.
