Forum on CDC’s New HIV Testing Recommendations

The Kaiser Family Foundation hosted a panel discussion on October 3 in Washington, D.C., to explore the implications of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s revised recommendations on HIV testing, which say HIV tests should become a routine part of medical care for patients ages 13 to 64.

Kaiser Vice President and Director of HIV Policy Jennifer Kates moderated a panel discussion that included Bernard Branson, M.D., associate director for Laboratory Diagnostics Divisions of HIV/AIDS Prevention, National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Frank Oldham, executive director, National Association of People with AIDS; Marsha Martin, senior deputy director, Administration for HIV/AIDS Policy and Programs, Department of Health, Washington, D.C.; David Holtgrave, professor and chair, Department of Health, Behavior and Society at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; and Bruce Rashbaum, M.D., Capital Medical Associates, Washington, D.C.
