Metadata[+] Show full item record
"Although it can be challenging to think about screenings while trying to fix potentially life-threatening conditions, hospitalists need to actively screen for HIV infection. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1.1 million people aged 13 and older had HIV infection in the United States at the end of 2016, including an estimated 162,500 (14%) people with undiagnosed infection. The number of new HIV diagnoses in the United States was 38,281 in 2017."
