WASHINGTON — A new program called Testing Together that was successfully piloted in several major U.S. cities is being rolled out nationally in HIV prevention programs funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It allows gay men in committed relationships with other men to be tested together, NPR reports.

HIV testing is typically done individually with the results being disclosed in private but with research pointing to as many as two-thirds of new HIV infections happening among committed couples, health officials say joint testing could have huge implications for HIV prevention.
