HIV Testing Pilot Project in Vancouver Hospitals to Expand
An HIV testing pilot project in Canada will expand, The Canadian Press reports. Launched in four Vancouver hospitals in 2011, the program began offering HIV tests to patients on admission when other blood tests were ordered. Before then, HIV tests were only offered to people considered at high risk for the virus. More than 30 people have tested HIV positive. The provincial government will expand the project to the rest of British Columbia in 2013.
