Young adults getting HIV test depreciates as a new research reveals the reasons for it. In the United States, 38.8% of women and 53.8% of men aged 15 to 44 reported that they have never been tested for HIV in the realms of donating blood or blood products between 2011 and 2015, according to a new study published in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health Statistics Reports.
Still among the 15 to 24 percent who announced that there were no tests being carried out on them rose to 63.9% of women and 73.7% of men. The reason for not getting tested was that they did not think they would be exposed to HIV. The study showed that the ratio for never being tested was lower in women than men. Isaedmarie Febo-Vazquez, a researcher at the CDC and first author of the study said that the percentage for never be tested were lower among those who had any HIV risk-related sexual or drug conduct in the past year compared to those who did not researched these conducts.
She also said that this account is appending more information and data in the realms of HIV testing. Holistically realizing why people avoid testing is more wholesome and these report hit the bulls’ eye. A previous study, conducted by CDC researchers and published in the journal Pediatrics in 2016, discovered that the percentage of young adults aged 18 to 24 who accounted that they have never been tested for HIV was undeviating among young men and rose profoundly among young women between 2011 and 2013.
