DOD and Navy Instruction

We support the implementation of the DOD and Navy Instructions regarding the identification, surveillance, and management of military personnel infected with HIV

Initial Positive Reporting and Notification

Do you have questions about the identification, surveillance, and management of military personnel infected with HIV? Ha ve you been tested and are now wondering what the implications are for your career and family. We provide answers to those questions about DOD policy, and also provide supporting documents intended to help Servicemembers through the process of testing for HIV and reporting results.

HIV Testing Guidance

The documents below are meant to support in the sample submission process, including how to place the barcode, pack, and send samples. We also provide guidance and information for using the HIV Management System (HMS) Loader (HMSLoader), a web-based application for the submission of blood test demographic information through manual and electronic entry.

Contractor Testing and Reporting Algorithms

To avoid errors and reduce any confusion in the process we use to conduct HIV testing and reporting, we created a standardized process that we provide in the documents below. We refer to them as algorithms because they provide a decision-tree approach aimed at reducing and defining uncertainty.
