The spread of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the general population has been a much debated topic in the mass media.
The aim of this study was to create an approach to estimating the risk of exposure to HIV resulting from sexual behaviors.
A theoretical estimate was applied to data obtained from a large-scale risk factor survey carried out in Britain.
An HIV infection-exposure risk index was constructed by ranking different sex-related categorizations derived from variables in the survey.
The risk index involved a Delphi-based assessment of self-reported behavioral factors associated with HIV exposure and subsequent transmission.
