Non-targeted HIV testing in ER acceptable to patients
from HealthDay News via MPR
A non-targeted HIV testing approach in a South African emergency department is acceptable to patients and reveals a high HIV prevalence, including undiagnosed cases, according to a study published online March 13 in PLOS ONE. Bhakti Hansoti, MBChB, from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and colleagues quantified the burden of undiagnosed HIV infection in a South African emergency department based on findings following implementation of the National South African HIV testing guidelines for 24 hours a day at Frere Hospital in the Eastern Cape.
