The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has come out with a new report, stating that only 40% of adults in the U.S. have been tested for HIV in the past year....Washington (ChattahBox) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has come out with a new report, stating that only 40% of adults in the U.S. have been tested for HIV in the past year.

This is a growing problem, as the CDC report stated that in 2006, only 40% of adults in the U.S. between 18 to 64-years old were tested for HIV.

This could lead to a push for more HIV testing, possibly making the tests more of a routine thing during a visit to the doctors.

More and more Americans are being infected with the AIDS virus, caused by HIV according to a recent CDC report. It revealed that estimations since the 1990s have been far below actual infection numbers.

So what does this mean, this means that the next time you go to the doctor’s an HIV test may just be a routine thing.
