Knowledge and attitudes related to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the use of the universal precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were investigated among 807 State and 2,797 local public health personnel in Michigan in September 1989.
Survey results indicated that the majority of respondents were well-informed regarding the major routes of HIV transmission, but many respondents hold misconceptions regarding nonviable routes of transmission and about policies on HIV conseling and testing.
