Panel wants regular HIV tests for adults
November 20, 2012 (WLS) -- An independent panel that sets screening guidelines wants to make testing for the AIDS virus as common as cholesterol checks.
The panel recommends that all Americans age 15-64 should get an HIV test at least once, not just people considered at high risk.
More than one million Americans are currently living with HIV, but nearly a quarter of a million of them don't know they have the virus.
That not only puts their health at risk without treatment, but they could unknowingly spread the virus to others.
