The risk of suicide in people with haemophilia who are HIV infected.
The incidence of suicide in the HIV infected haemophilic population of the United Kingdom is low.
Between 1985, when most patients were tested for HIV infection, and 1993 3 possibly HIV-related suicides were reported to Haemophilia Centre Directors.
It is argued that haemophilia comprehensive care may contribute to reducing some of the factors associated with suicide risk, and thus be a reason for this low incidence.
It is suggested that the pattern of health care delivery developed for the haemophilia community might serve as a template for those treating others with HIV infection.
