"We are honored to be working with Ms. Dayana Mendoza, the Latino Commission on AIDS, and so many dedicated state and local organizations to raise awareness of the importance of HIV testing on National Latino AIDS Awareness Day," said Douglas A. Michels, President and Chief Executive Officer of OraSure Technologies. "Now for the first time ever, individuals have access to the OraQuick In-Home HIV test – the same test healthcare professionals have used and trusted for years – that will empower them to learn their HIV status in the comfort and privacy of their own homes."Despite testing options that have been available for years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that approximately 1.2 million people in the U.S. have HIV and approximately 240,000 of them are unaware of their status. Those who do not know they are HIV positive are disproportionately responsible for a majority of the 50,000 new HIV infections that occur each year. The CDC recommends routine HIV screening for all people ages 13 to 64, with more frequent testing for people at higher risk.
