Needs Statement

Individuals living with an unknown HIV infection account for approximately 40% of new HIV infections, due to a lack of screening (Webel AR, Longenecker CT, Gripshover B, et al., 2014). The CDC estimates that more than 50% of American adults of all ages have never been tested for HIV. Similar screening rates have been found for specific patient populations, such as men who have sex with men (MSM) and people who inject drugs (PWID), who have a higher risk of HIV infection. Effective HIV screening remains the most significant barrier to prevention and treatment. Therefore, there is a need for providers to place a greater emphasis to screen all patients over the age of 13 in an effort to prevent more new diagnoses and reduce transmission rates.

Target Audience

Primary Care Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and Social Workers


Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Assess barriers associated with HIV prevention methods, including safer sex practices and PrEP.
  • Identify barriers for initiating HIV prevention methods for PWID.
  • Discuss interventions that could prevent HIV transmission, such as safer needle use.
