Screening hoped to remove HIV stigma

HIV testing aim to lessen stigma, but does universal testing make sense for low-risk groups?

    An influential panel of doctors is calling for universal HIV tests in the US, to help prevent the disease from spreading.

    Insurers would be obliged to cover the cost of the tests under the new health care law.

    It is hoped such a move would also combat stigma associated with HIV-AIDS.
