Would you be more comfortable taking an HIV/AIDS test in the privacy of your own home? According to Health Day News, it could help prevent the spread of AIDS. "Having people test themselves for HIV is effective and could help bring the worldwide HIV/AIDS epidemic under control, a new study contends.

The researchers explained that self-testing, combined with counseling, could improve rates of early detection and treatment, thereby reducing transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS." more

Your thoughts?
