Abstract:

Since October 1985, the U.S. military has conducted routine screening at Military Entrance Processing Stations MEPS to detect antibodies to HIV-1 among civilian applicants for military service. Since 1986, all members of the active and reserve components of the U.S. Armed Forces have been periodically screened for antibodies to HIV-1. This report summarizes prevalences and trends of new diagnoses of HIV-1 infection among civilian applicants for military service and soldiers in the active and reserve components of the U.S. Army who have been screened since 1990.
