CDC: Majority of Teens Not Getting Tested for HIV


Most U.S. high school students and young adults who have sex don´t get HIV tests, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

The American Academy of Pediatrics in December advised all teenagers between age 16 and 18 to be tested for HIV and AIDS.

According to the CDC, however, "recommendations to screen all adolescents and young adults for HIV infection, regardless of risk, have not been widely implemented".
