La perception des médecins généralistes sur le dépistage du VIH chez le migrant d'Afrique noire et du Maghreb‎ : étude dans la région de la Haute-Normandie

Abstract : Introduction. The association between African migrants and pathology of HIV is not a surprise for many general practitioners (GPs). Our qualitative study focuses on perceptions by GPs of HIV testing in these patients in the Upper Normandy region. Methods. Between June 2012 and August 2013, 16 individual semi-directed interviews were canied out at GP offices. Results. The population of African migrants in France is well perceived as a population at higher risk for HIV by GPs interrogated. Targeted screening for this population raises ethical issues for these physicians. The HIV incidence in France, concerning for half the migrants is not known by GPs interrogated. The refusal of screening is rare among their patients who are African migrants. The introduction of routine screening is not known by the majority of GPs interrogated. Conclusion. There would be an interest to enforce sensitization of general practitioners to adhere to routine HIV testing in the general population, because of the new French recommendations, but also because of their reluctance to target an ethnie group of the population such as migrants.
