In September of 2006, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released revised recommendations for routine HIV testing in health care settings in the United States.  In order to help track the progress of these recommendations, the Forum for Collaborative HIV Research created a web portal  focusing on routine HIV testing in the United States.  This portal serves as a centralized hub of the latest information on HIV testing initiatives, models, publications, and news in the United States and serves as a valuable reference tool for those wishing to learn more about routine HIV testing initiative in the United States.
