Ohio has removed hurdles to HIV testing in accordance with federal recommendations to increase routine HIV tests, even on those Americans who are not considered “high risk.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention called for more widespread screening five years ago, but until recently, Ohio law created obstacles to the test. A state law clearing those obstacles was enacted in 2009.

The Ohio Department of Heath issued rules on how to follow the new Ohio law in the fall.
