The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends that all patients ages 15 to 65 undergo HIV screening regardless of whether they are at risk. The task force stated in updated guidelines that identifying and addressing HIV in asymptomatic individuals may benefit the general public. The task force has also renewed its call for the screening of all pregnant women to help prevent mother-to-child transmission. The recommendations appear in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
