2012 HIV/AIDS Summit by the Sea: Women’s Health & HIV Infection on the US-Mexico Border
In the Valley, which is a designated health professional shortage area and where stigmas and fear of HIV testing is still pervasive, routine HIV testing in health care settings can be the first and best line of defense against HIV and AIDS. It can mean earlier diagnosis and treatment, and it can reduce the rate of transmission. Data shows that once people know they are infected with HIV, they can and do make choices to protect themselves and others. Routine testing can also create opportunities to help those who are not infected stay that way, and to help eliminate the fear and stigma associated with risk-based HIV testing.
