  1. Cross-sectional survey of hospital paediatric HIV/AIDS care in Catalonia, 1992.

    Article - En anglais

    A cross-sectional survey to assess the impact of the paediatric HIV/AIDS epidemic on the hospital-based health care system was performed in state-financed hospitals in Catalonia during 1992, raising issues of relevance today.

    Out of the 27 hospitals contacted, 20 responded.

    A considerable proportion of the health care to children with an HIV-related condition was provided by four hospitals.

    The average length of stay of the 176 HIV patients who were admitted was 10.8 days ; these patients were admitted to the hospital twice a year on average.

    Nearly half of the out-patients who attended with an HIV-related condition were either seropositive without a confirmed diagnosis of an HIV infection (class P-0) or seronegative.

    Thirteen per cent of the overall admissions to paediatric day care hospitals were attributable to an HIV-related condition.

    By ownership status of the hospitals, HIV/AIDS paediatric in-patients of public hospitals generated the majority of admissions per patient per year, and had the shortest lengths of stay.

    Unlike the HIV/AIDS epidemic in adults, the magnitude and characteristics of the epidemic in children may not require the shift of hospital-based health care to primary health care.
