People with HIV not receiving continuing care
New federal data shows many people diagnosed with HIV do not receive continuing care.
Findings from the Centers for Disease Control show 41 percent of people recently diagnosed with HIV are not receiving follow-up testing, which indicates they are not being treated for the virus. That percentage is even greater for African Americans and Hispanics.
The CDC researched data from 13 states and cities, including San Francisco.
Researchers say the findings highlight the need for targeted efforts to increase continuing care for all people with HIV.
