The authors review the literature on the accuracy of currently employed tests for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and urge improvements in standardization of procedures, mandatory proficiency testing, and licensing of clinical laboratories doing such tests. They discuss test use in several voluntary and mandatory situations; attendant problems of anonymity, confidentiality, and informed consent; and the need to consider ethical principles in defining, quantifying, and balancing the risks and benefits to the parties involved.
