International adoption is a politically sensitive phenomenon. Every year, thousands of children arrive in the USA from over 100 countries for adoption. Infectious disease screening of children from these diverse political, social, and geographic backgrounds is best accomplished using a standardized protocol, including a review of immunizations, a complete blood count and urinalysis, and screening tests for hepatitis B, HIV, intestinal parasites, tuberculosis and syphilis.
