Panel to Discuss Federal Guidelines for HIV Testing

On October 3, 2006 the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), a national non-profit organization that focuses on major U.S. healthcare issues, will host a panel discussion of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new HIV testing guidelines. The revised federal guidelines, which were announced on September 22, 2006, recommend routine HIV testing for all patients between the ages of 13 and 64 years old.

Read the CDC Recommendations and Guidelines.

Jennifer Kates, KFF’s Vice President and Director of HIV Policy, will serve as the panel moderator. Panelists include representatives from the CDC, the National Association of People with AIDS, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Administration for HIV Policy and Programs, and Capital Medical Associates, a DC-based medical practice specializing in innovative HIV care.

The Kaiser panel discussion will take place at the Barbara Jordan Conference Center, inside KFF’s Washington DC headquarters.
