Scale up of HIV Testing is Vital

By on .

In this video interview, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and an expert in epidemiology and outcomes research, discusses the need to scale up HIV testing and link those who test positive to appropriate care. She also talks about a new avenue to reach men who may be infected with the virus.

Dr. Walensky spoke at an event in Washington last week, “Changing Course: Stemming the Deadly Twin Epidemics of HIV and Tuberculosis,”  where more than 100 HIV and TB scientists, policymakers, and advocates have come together  to discuss the future of US global health policy and potential new scientific breakthroughs in the battles against HIV and TB.
