  1. Comparison of the clientele of an anonymous HIV test centre and persons tested in the general population.

    Article - En anglais

    This study compares the clientele of a Swiss anonymous test centre with the general population tested.

    Information was obtained through similar questionnaires submitted to two samples of HIV-tested people aged from 17 to 45 years : the first administered in the context of a general population telephone survey (n=245) and the second completed during face-to-face interviews of the clientele of an anonymous test centre (n=250).

    The test centre sample has higher proportions of younger and single people.

    Attenders for anonymous testing were more likely to have acquired a new regular partner during the year preceding the interview (48.0% versus 14.4%). These differences remain when controlling for age and gender.

    Decision to test comes mostly from the respondent's own initiative, but suggestion from a doctor is more frequent in the general population (23.8% versus 0.8%), whereas suggestion from partner or friends is more frequent in the anonymous centre (44. 4% versus 3.0%). The anonymous test centre clientele is not different from the general population tested except for the relational situation and origin of decision for testing.

    The test centre has become a place where the general population finds a response to a situation-specific need for HIV testing.
