    Article - En anglais


    Evaluation of the extent and outcome of HIV testing in Sweden.


    Data from screening programmes, laboratory and clinical reports were compared and a national survey on HIV testing was performed.


    The proportion found to be positive in screening of blood donors, pregnant women and sexually transmitted disease patients were approximately 1/100000, 1/10000 and 1-2/1000, respectively.

    One-quarter of the men and one-third of the women in Sweden aged 16-74 years reported that they had been tested for HIV at least once.


    There is a high cost involved in detecting HIV-infected individuals through general testing.

    This cost can be justified if we believe that awareness of an infection substantially reduces the risk of further transmission.
