1 December is World AIDS Day, a day to recognise and address the ongoing disparities related to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
This day serves as a powerful reminder of the ongoing battle against HIV/AIDS and the importance of awareness, education, and support for those affected.
In the fight against HIV, testing plays a pivotal role, making it a central theme for this year’s World AIDS Day.
The impact of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic initially slowed testing rates, but recent trends indicate a resilient comeback.
Public health initiatives, increased awareness, and accessible testing facilities have contributed to this positive shift.
According to GlobalData’s HIV Tests US Hospital Tracker database, the total market revenue for HIV tests sold to US hospitals was between $176.9m and $210.0m, meaning that between 19.3 million and 22.9 million tests were sold to US hospitals in 2022.

Early detection allows for timely medical intervention, which can significantly improve health outcomes.
Moreover, those who are aware of their HIV-positive status can take measures to prevent the transmission of the virus to others.
