Federal health officials have approved the first at-home test to detect HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

This test is the first and only rapid over-the-counter test approved in the United States.

About 50,000 Americans become infected with the human immunodeficiency virus, and about half of those who are newly infected with the virus are Black, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
