The objectives of this study were to investigate HIV-1 seroprevalence and risk factors, disease progression, and awareness of HIV-1 serostatus in a population of inner city, substance using, psychiatric inpatients.
To pursue these goals, we tested 118 (103 M, 15 F) dually diagnosed, acute care inpatients for HIV-1 antibodies and administered structured interviews.
Twenty-seven (23%, including 24 M and 3 F) of the subjects were HIV-1 seropositive.
Seropositivity was twice as great among intravenous drug users and men who had sex with other men as among patients not belonging to either of these two groups.
