Abstract

This quality standard covers interventions to improve the uptake of HIV testing among people who may have undiagnosed HIV. It focuses on increasing testing to reduce undiagnosed infection in people at increased risk of exposure. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.

It does not cover HIV testing in antenatal services as a universal antenatal screening programme is currently offered in England.

Keeping quality standards up to date

We check our quality standards every August to make sure they are up to date.
