Health Panel gets Strict to Fight HIV

Fight-HIV-Health-Panel

HIV is spreading at a very fast speed and so are the concerned health authorities preparing to slow this spread at any cost. One such step has been taken by a government health panel on Monday, which, for the very first time, is recommending human immunodeficiency virus testing for all Americans aged 15 to 65.

Following the fact that U. S. has approx 200,000 people infected with the virus that can cause AIDS, the U. S. Preventive Services Task Force has recently drafted the above recommendations with an aim to prevent the maximum number of lives from such risks.

Experts have estimated 1.1 million Americans to be suffering from HIV and about 50,000 new cases being reported annually.

The panel cleared in its recent statements upon the issue that running tests upon only those people, who are at high risks, hasn't seen much effect and so has the officials decided suggesting testing for all falling under the age group of 15-65 years.

The panel said in an article in Annals of Internal Medicine that was published on Monday to support the task force's recommendation that "Targeted screening misses a substantial proportion of infected persons because of undisclosed or unknown risk factors".
