A Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) released last week revealed HIV testing occurs at less than one percent of physician office and emergency department visits, and at less than three percent of community health center visits. The report found that during 2009 to 2016, there was no increase in the percentage of HIV testing during physician office visits and HIV testing was performed at a higher percentage of visits for preventive care and visits with venipuncture.
