About 50% of new HIV infections are caused by people who do not know they are infected. By detecting infection sooner, prevention experts hope that new infection rates will decrease dramatically because more people will be aware of their infection and in turn will take more safer sex precautions. Early detection also provides more more opportunity for education and counseling that decreases high risk sexual behavior. Finally, an added benefit of early diagnosis is early treatment; and early treatment means a better prognosis.
