Doctors now have convincing evidence that they put HIV into remission, hopefully for good, in an American baby born with the AIDS virus — a medical first that is prompting a new look at how hard and fast such cases should be treated.
On Tuesday the CDC announced that a $1.2 million program will offer free rapid HIV tests at pharmacies and in-store clinics in several North Texas cities and 23 other communities across the country.
