  1. Patterns and trends of sexual behavior, HIV testing, and HIV prevalence among all sexually transmitted disease clinic attenders in Denmark.

    Article - En anglais

    Background and Objectives 

    Persons attending a sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic have shown to be at a higher risk for HIV infection than the population in general.

    We evaluate the patterns of HIV prevalence and testing in relation to reported risk behavior.

    Study Design 

    Data have been collected on all new attenders at the Danish STD clinics.

    The study period was January 1,1990 through March 1992.


    Testing for HIV was accepted by 74% and more often by women than men and more outside Copenhagen than in the city itself.

    Acceptance was lowest among homo/bisexual men seen in Copenhagen.

    The HIV prevalence was highest among homo/bisexual men with drug use (10.0%) and lowest among heterosexual men (0.3%) and women (0.2%).
