The ability to provide a simple, rapid HIV test enables physicians to carry out CDC testing guidelines that call for HIV testing in all healthcare settings for all people 13-65 years old. In Ghana, where malaria is endemic and testing of donated blood for parasitemia is not routinely available, a randomized trial demonstrated that treatment of whole blood with one of these methods (riboflavin [vitamin B2] plus ultraviolet [UV] light) was able to significantly reduce transfusion-transmitted malaria [ 12 ]. (See "Pathogen inactivation of blood products", section on 'Potential benefits' .) HIV serodiscordant couples may question whether continued condom use is necessary for HIV prevention if the HIV-infected partner is on antiretroviral therapy (ART).
