HIV Pretest and Posttest Counseling: Still Missing From Medical School Curriculum

Arch Intern Med. 2000;160(21):3326. doi:

It has been almost 20 years since the first report about a disease that we now call AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) was published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Shortly thereafter, serological testing to detect evidence of infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was developed, and guidelines were published for HIV counseling and testing. Today, the majority of HIV testing is performed in a broad range of medical care settings and not at publicly funded testing sites.1
