Antiretroviral therapy (ART) for the treatment of HIV infection has improved steadily since the advent of potent combination therapy in 1996. ART has dramatically reduced HIV-associated morbidity and mortality and has transformed HIV infection into a manageable chronic condition. In addition, ART is highly effective at preventing HIV transmission.1 However, only 55% of people with HIV in the United States have suppressed viral loads,2 mostly resulting from undiagnosed HIV infection and failure to link or retain diagnosed patients in care.
