J Infect. 1992 Jan;24(1):43-7. Unique Identifier : AIDSLINE MED/92193657

The risk factors for infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) were assessed in individuals attending two different HIV antibody testing clinics: Genitourinary Medicine (GUM) and an HIV counselling and screening clinic (CSC) The risk of acquiring other sexually transmissible infections (STD) was also assessed, and all patients were offered STD screening. Fewer STDs were found in CSC patients than in GUM patients, but the results highlight the need to be aware of the possibility of other STDs whenever and wherever HIV antibody testing is undertaken.
