First-ever estimates of transmission at each stage of HIV care reinforce the value of testing and treatment efforts

Today in JAMA Internal Medicine, CDC researchers published the first U.S. estimates of the number of HIV transmissions from people engaged at five consecutive stages of care (including with those who are unaware of their infection, those who are retained in care and those who have their virus under control through treatment), finding more than 90 percent of new HIV infections could be averted by diagnosing people living with HIV and ensuring they receive prompt, ongoing care and treatment. The new analysis reinforces the importance of HIV testing and treatment for protecting the health of people living with HIV and preventing transmission to others.
