Traduction en anglais : Estimation of the number of HIV infected individuals in the Federal Republic of Germany on the basis of data from the AIDS centre.
On the basis of an analysis of the data from the mandatory reporting of detected HIV infections and the reports to the central AIDS case registry an attempt is made to determine the total number of HIV infected individuals in the FRG.
Results of surveys of testing behaviour in different risk groups were included in the calculations.
For the calculation different estimates were used as to the total number of detected HIV infections, distribution of infections and percentage of detected infections in different risk groups.
Depending on the stimates chosen a best case calculation yields 29,515 and the worst case calculation 81,949 HIV infected persons at the end of 1990.
