Toward an endgame: finding and engaging people unaware of their HIV-1 infection in treatment and prevention

AIDS Res Hum Retroviruses. 2014 Mar;30(3):217-24. doi: 10.1089/AID.2013.0274. Epub 2014 Feb 11.


Epidemic modeling suggests that a major scale-up in HIV treatment could have a dramatic impact on HIV incidence. This has led both researchers and policymakers to set a goal of an "AIDS-Free Generation." One of the greatest obstacles to achieving this objective is the number of people with undiagnosed HIV infection. Despite recent innovations, new research strategies are needed to identify, engage, and successfully treat people who are unaware of their infection.
