What is a recent HIV-1 infection?

Based on RTRI evaluation, a recent HIV infection is one that was acquired approximately within the past 12 months. Although “mean time” for recent infection detection is about 6 months, there is distribution of recent infection around the mean, which can vary from 3 months to >9 months. Therefore, at the individual level, it is appropriate to characterize recent infection as having acquired HIV within the past 12 months.
