The Case for Wider Use of Testing for HIV Infection
Rhame, Frank S.
Maki, Dennis G.
New England Journal of Medicine. 1989 May 11; 320(19): 1248-1254.
Rhame and Maki recommend the expansion of HIV testing in the United States to include all adults under the age of 60, regardless of reported risk factors. They believe that most Americans infected with HIV are not aware of their status, that current efforts to identify persons infected with HIV are failing, and that voluntary testing within the health care system must be promoted nationally. Detecting HIV infection as early as possible, they argue, would directly benefit those infected, and testing as part of routine health care would benefit society. (KIE abstract)
