ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) which found that the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) should assure HHS agencies coordinate HIV programs to prevent HIV. GAO also discovered the need for HIV-positive individuals to undergo timely testing to prevent disease's transmission and to improve health outcomes. The study was made after GAO received a request to explore issues on the identification of individuals with HIV.
