Laboratory Testing for the Diagnosis of HIV Infection: Updated Recommendations

Description: As of 2010, an estimated 1.1 million persons in the United States were living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, of whom an estimated 181,000 were unaware of their infection. Approximately 49,000 new HIV diagnoses are reported to CDC each year, and the estimated number of new infections has remained stable at approximately 50,000 annually from 2008 to 2010. As of 2009, an estimated 83 million adults aged 18 to 64 years reported they had been tested for HIV. Accurate laboratory diagnosis of HIV is essential to identify persons who could benefit from treatment, to reassure persons who are uninfected, and to reduce HIV transmission.
