Epidemiologic investigation of a cluster of workplace HIV infections in the adult film industry: Los Angeles, California, 2004.
MetadataShow full item record
The article is a controversial new finding. It provides evidence that a change in strategy is needed. in that preventive and targeted HIV counselling should be given to adult film makers before and after monthly polymerase chain reaction (peR) testing. to avoid a recurrence of the situation where a 23% attack rate was found. In this case report. three out of 13 sexual partners were infected with HIV. It seems that workers are tested routinely monthly without building on the HIV/AIDS preventive education and counselling. and the lesson here is that even where a particular community or population has had basic HIV education, there is still a need to provide more information and encourage communication, as risk perception might be low. People must be taught how to avoid HIV infection. Further research regarding the quality of pre- and post-test counselling in this setting is suggested.
