From April 1988 through December 1989, sera obtained for syphilis testing from consecutive patients attending 98 sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinics in 37 metropolitan areas were tested for antibodies to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in an unlinked (blinded) survey.
HIV seroprevalence in STD clinics ranged from 0 to 38.5% (median, 2.3%), with the highest rates found in the Mid-Atlantic states, Florida, and Puerto Rico.
The highest median rates were found in men who have sex with men (36.1%) and heterosexual intravenous (IV) drug users (4.1%).
