To describe clinically important differences in the characteristics of subjects using three distinct HIV counseling and testing settings: scheduled confidential, scheduled anonymous, and confidential walk-in.
An HIV risk-assessment questionnaire was given to individuals prior to receiving HIV-antibody testing and counseling.
Demographic and behavioral data was analyzed for each of the three counseling and testing settings.
Walk-in clinic subjects reported fewer high-risk sexual activities and other risk behaviors than subjects from the other two testing settings.
They also included more individuals who were health-care workers and victims of sexual assault.
The three distinct HIV counseling and testing settings each attracted populations with varying degrees of potential for HIV transmission.
