A National College Health Assessment survey conducted in American university campuses has found that most young people do not use condoms to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases. Even those educated in the risks of not being protected do not always protect themselves. The CDC is promoting OraQuick and OraSure which can test for HIV in blood and saliva within 20 minutes and is 99.3% accurate. Previous longer tests led to people often not coming back to find out their results. 27,000 people tested positive for HIV each year at CDC public testing venues but 31% of those who were positive never came back for their results.
