Thousands of people in the United States are diagnosed with HIV every year. Many people have HIV for years before they know it. Testing everyone ages 13 to 64 years for HIV at least once in their lifetime — and testing people at high risk for HIV at least once a year — can lead to early diagnosis and treatment.
