  • It's time to test everyone in Canada for HIV/AIDS, says Dr. Julio Montaner

Dr. Julio Montaner, the director of British Columbia's Centre for Excellence in HIV and AIDS, says that in B.C. alone, 2,000 of the 15,000 people with HIV/AIDS don't even know they're infected and so are more likely to spread the virus. It's estimated one in six people have an advanced form of HIV by the time they're diagnosed, and that more than half of new infections are transmitted by people who don't know they have HIV.
