HIV counseling and testing services from public and private providers--United States, 1990.


MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 1992 Oct 9;41(40):743, 749-52. Unique

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) counseling and testing (CT) services are key elements of the national HIV-prevention strategy (1,2). Although the number and characteristics of persons receiving CT through publicly funded programs are monitored by CDC's CT data system (3), this system does not provide information about persons tested for HIV antibody by physicians in the private sector, hospitals, and other nonpublicly funded sources. This report summarizes data from CDC's 1990 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) AIDS Supplement (4) regarding CT received from public and private providers.
