Paid HIV rapid testing in general medicine private practice in French Guiana: a pilot project

Abstract : French Guiana has long been the French territory most affected by HIV (Ministry of Health, 2010). Persons unaware of their HIV infection have a preponderant role in the infection of new sexual partners.1 Too often, HIV-infected persons unaware of their infections repeatedly come in contact with physicians without being offered an HIV test.2 In French Guiana, private practitioners perform 70% of all HIV tests and diagnose 45% of new HIV patients.3 Following the national recommendations to do an HIV test each year for every one having sexual relations in French Guiana,4,5 a pilot project using rapid HIV tests in the private practice was developed by the Réseau Kikiwi, a network of health professionals involved in HIV care and testing. The objective here is to present this experience and its evaluation.
