BACKGROUND Early diagnosis and treatment of HIV infection and suppression of viral load are potentially powerful interventions for reducing HIV incidence. A test-and-treat strategy may have long-term effects on the epidemic among urban men who have sex with men (MSM) in the United States and may achieve the 5-year goals of the 2010 National AIDS Strategy that include: 1) lowering to 25% the annual number of new infections, 2) reducing by 30% the HIV transmission rate, 3) increasing to 90% the… CONTINUE READING

A test - and - treat strategy may have long - term effects on the epidemic among urban men who have sex with men ( MSM ) in the United States and may achieve the 5-year goals of the 2010 National AIDS Strategy that include : 1 ) lowering to 25% the annual number of new infections , 2 ) reducing by 30% the HIV transmission rate , 3 ) increasing to 90% the proportion of persons living with HIV infection who know their HIV status , 4 ) increasing to 85% the proportion of newly diagnosed patients linked to clinical care , and 5 ) increasing by 20% the proportion of HIV - infected MSM with an undetectable HIV RNA viral load .
