Bakary Drammeh of the Division of Global HIV & TB at the Center for Global Health at CDC and colleagues discuss sex differences in HIV testing across 20 PEPFAR-supported sub-Saharan African countries in 2019 and note that during the study period, “men [were] less likely to be tested for HIV than women and represented 37% of HIV-positive results. Although women were twice as likely to be tested for HIV, approximately one third of new cases identified occurred among men” (12/4).
