Barriers to HIV Testing Among HIV/AIDS Concurrently Diagnosed Persons in New York City
August 15, 2011
The failure to perceive they were at risk was the chief barrier to HIV testing among this study's population of persons who were diagnosed with AIDS when they first learned they were HIV-positive.
The team undertook the study to assess barriers to HIV testing, health care contacts history and HIV testing history among patients diagnosed concurrently with HIV and AIDS. The researchers surveyed concurrently diagnosed patients who had participated in the partner notification program of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene from January 2008 to December 2008.
