New HIV/COVID Screening Protocols

In this issue:

How can HIV infection be better identified in the populations, most of which are underserved, that experience the majority of new HIV cases? How cost-effective are current screening strategies? Can screening for HIV be linked to education about PrEP? Are there benefits to linking HIV screening with COVID testing? What does the evidence say?

These are some of the topics key to curtailing the HIV epidemic that Dr. Luis Rubio from the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine explores in this issue of eHIV Review.

Learning objectives:

  • Explain current HIV screening strategies most appropriate to specific at-risk populations.
  • Describe the potential benefits of linking HIV screening and SARS-CoV-2 testing.
