Perceived risk of becoming infected with HIV by donating blood and changes in reported blood donation practice among the Scottish general public 1989-1992.
A total of 17,537 respondents aged 18-60 and resident in Edinburgh and Glasgow were interviewed between January 1989 and May 1992 as part of a large scale continuous monitoring survey of lifestyles and health.
A computer assisted telephone interview (CATI) system was used.
Respondents were chosen randomly from households with telephones.
The objective was to see whether concern about the risks of becoming infected with HIV by donating blood led to a change in the blood donating habits of existing blood donors.
Results showed on change in the percentage of donors, exdonors and non-donors between 1989 and 1992, but a recent decrease in the percentage of respondents who thought that you could become infected with HIV by donating blood was observed.
