HIV Screening

CDC recommends that individuals between the ages of 13 to 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care and that those with risk factors get tested more frequently. Patients who may be at high risk for HIV should be screened at least annually. Providers should screen patients who may be at high risk for HIV at least annually.

Sexual health is an essential element of overall health and well-being. By asking all your adult and adolescent patients a few essential questions, you help to remove the stigma around discussing sex and normalize these discussions.
