Study: Inmates Should Be Routinely Tested for HIV
All inmates in Rhode Island should be routinely screened for HIV, according to researchers in that state, The Providence Journal reports. Their study found 169 new HIV cases among inmates from 2000 to 2007, which represented 15 percent of all newly diagnosed HIV cases in Rhode Island during those years. The current testing program has been struggling because of budget concerns, which also threaten the implementation of costlier rapid HIV testing recommended by the researchers.
