Summary: On May 30, 2008, Professor Ralph R. Frerichs conducted a guest lecture on HIV testing strategies in the UCLA course, EPI 227 "AIDS: A Major Public Health Challenge" (Instructor: Professor Roger Detels).  The two-hour lecture featured a public health view of testing.  Specifically the emphasis was on preventing HIV transmission to susceptible persons, rather than upholding the right of HIV infected persons to avoid detection.  Final, the focus was on new strategies to promote widespread HIV testing.
