  • Doctors may be missing opportunities to test patients for HIV

Approximately 35 (52%) of MSM and 64 (45%) of PWID who tested positive for HIV following the interview had not received an HIV test in the past year and reported not being offered HIV testing by any clinician during health care visits.

Clinicians aren't offering HIV testing to many people unaware they are infected with the virus.

A new study from the CDC says about 1 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV including about 162 thousand who don't know it. He knows people who are living with HIV who are "doing very well" on treatment.

The health department used to offer free hepatitis C testing, but the funding for that program ran out as well.

"The only thing is, usually, when people go to the doctor, they automatically assume HIV is part of their physical".

People should be tested for HIV as often as they put themselves at risk and Matrix Human Services is extending its hours today and Thursday, so that anyone who wants to take a test is able to do so.
