Government push only moderately boosted HIV testing numbers
USA Today

A major government push to make HIV testing part of every doctor’s medical routine has only modestly increased the number of people tested, federal officials reported Tuesday. An estimated 45% of people between the ages of 18 and 64 reported last year that they’ve had an HIV test, up 11 million or 5% since 2006.

That brings the number of people tested so far to 83 million, according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
