Answer

HIV detection is the first step in the laboratory workup. In September 2006, the CDC released its Revised Recommendations for HIV Testing of Adults Adolescents, and Pregnant Women in Health-Care Settings. [33] These new recommendations, which replaced the CDC’s 1993 Recommendations for HIV Testing Services for Inpatients and Outpatients in Acute Care Hospital Settings, advise routine HIV screening for adults, adolescents, and pregnant women in healthcare settings in the United States. They also recommend reducing barriers to HIV testing.
