Quels sont les obstacles au dépistage du VIH, et à l'abord de la sexualité, en cabinet de médecine générale ? Représentations des patients

Abstract : Background: In the recent French guidelines, the general practitioner becomes one of the main actors in the routine HIV screening. Review of the international studies shows that general practitioners perform rarely a sexual history. Methods: From January 2011 to April 2012, 340 self-administered questionnaires were completed by patients consulting general practitioners, in Paris area. This study was focused on the patients’ opinion, concerning routine HIV screening and sexual history-taking. Results: 72% of the patients have already been testing and mainly on their own demand. Nearly 80% of patients would accept routine HIV screening. Two thirds of patients have never mentioned sexuality with their physician and most of them do not wish to do it. Men, patients aged between 26 and 40 years and the patients, who do not know their physician very well, answer more often that they won’t mind to talk about sexuality with their general practitioner. Conclusion: The majority of the patients agree with routine HIV screening but they are not aware yet to talk about sexuality with their own general practitioner. Sexuality is still a taboo, either for the patient or the physician.
