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.
