A paper presented at the annual conference of the British HIV Association a few week ago argued that a number of current clinical guidelines do not support, or actively contradict, specialist HIV clinical recommendations that a wide a range as possible of non-HIV specialists such offer HIV tests to their patients. Presented by Martin Fisher, the presentation presented the findings from a survey of guidelines, and showed that only four documents published by non-HIV specialist societies, and dealing with 13 clinical indicator diseases, consider or recommend HIV testing.

Saving Lives exists to raise awareness amongst the public and the clinical community alike: HIV testing should be considered in all relevant cases, regardless of perceptions of risk or other factors – and it should be provided in as wide array of clinical contexts as possible, too. You can read more about these findings at the AIDSMAP site.
