SFAF.org Podcast #51 - Dr. Marsha Martin explains why we need universal HIV testing

In this episode, Dr. Marsha Martin, the Director of Get Screened Oakland, discusses why everyone should get an HIV test. Nationally, one in four people who are HIV positive do not know it. One of the strategic goals of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation is to have every San Francisco resident between 13 to 64 know their current HIV status by 2015.
