HIV infection risk, behaviors, and attitudes about testing: are perceptions changing?
Adams AL, et al.People at high risk for HIV infection could be increasing their risk behaviors, especially now that improved treatments for HIV infection are available. The goal of this work was to investigate whether risk behaviors, perceptions of personal risk for HIV infection, and attitudes toward HIV testing among high-risk persons in Oregon differed in 1996 and 1998. Persons at high risk might underestimate their risk for HIV infection while practicing risky behaviors. The prevalence of risk behaviors in these populations could be considered the baseline against which to measure future prevention efforts.
