What "Science Says" to Teens

The National Campaign to End Teen Pregnancy now has two new "Science Says" research briefs on HIV testing and HIV counseling now available for sexually experienced teens.

Among the primary findings:
  • Only about one in three sexually experienced teens (aged 15-19) have ever been tested for HIV.
  • Sexually experienced teen girls are more likely than sexually experienced teen boys to be tested.
  • And only about one-third of sexually experienced teens who are tested for HIV talk to a doctor or other health professional about AIDS after the test.

These briefs can be viewed or downloaded from the Campaign's website.
