A study of clients returning for counseling after HIV testing : implications for improving rates of return.
Pretest and posttest counseling have become standard components of prevention-oriented human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody testing programs.
However, not all persons who receive pretest counseling and testing return for posttest counseling.
Records of 557,967 clients from January through December 1990, representing more than 60 percent of all publicly funded HIV counseling and testing, were analyzed to determine variables independently associated with returning for HIV posttest counseling.
On average, 63 percent of clients returned for posttest counseling.
