Adults and young individuals in areas of high or very high HIV prevalence should be offered HIV testing when registering to a GP practice or when having a blood test if they have not taken an HIV test in the last 12 months.

Adults and young individuals newly diagnosed with an HIV indicator condition should be offered an HIV test.

Adults and young individuals at high risk who test negative for HIV should be asked to repeat the test at least annually.

Acceptability of HIV oral testing was also high at 87.0% (95% CI; 83.6-89.9). Participants preferred HIV oral testing because it was: pain free (91%, n = 399) and did not require blood draw (82%, n = 360).    Source:  PubMed
