This study describes a 1 year international data collection on the demand pattern for HIV-antibody tests in general practice recorded by 6 sentinel networks in 5 European countries.
The purpose of the recording was to evaluate the use of HIV-antibody testing by general practitioners and the demand for testing among the general population.
Sentinel networks of general practitioners are a possible and available instrument for monitoring the perception of the HIV-test, and indirectly of the threat of the HIV-epidemic by the public and by the general practitioners (GPs).
Differences were found between the countries in the frequency of testing, the person asking the test and the reason for testing.
