Transcript

I think everyone (every adult) in the United States should receive a HIV test at least once in their life. Those who have risk factors for HIV (for example: gay men who are practicing sex without condoms, intravenous drug users) should have it more often. This extends to people even to the age of 13, where they become sexually active. These individuals should be tested. People should not wait until they feel sick to get this test because the sooner we can intervene with antiretroviral drugs, the better it is for the patient and the better for our community because we reduce the ability of these individuals to transmit it to others.
