Inhoud: Findings from a study of the testing and treatment behaviour and experiences of African-American ( n=31), Puerto Rican ( n=30) and non-Hispanic white ( n= 23) HIV-infected women are reported. All women were 20-45 years of age and had not yet been diagnosed with AIDS. Data for the analyses presented were gathered through an interviewer-administered questionnaire completed before respondents participated in an unstructured interview. The analyses examine race/ethnic differences in women's delays in seeking testing and medical care, and in sources and types of HIV-treatment. Most significant for primary and secondary prevention efforts, the findings suggest that a significant proportion of women who suspect they are infected may delay being tested, and further, a substantial proportion who learn they are seropositive may delay seeking medical care. Thus important opportunities among HIV-infected women for secondary prevention through timely antiviral and prophylactic treatment, and for primary prevention through risk-reduction counselling may be being missed in many cases.
