Abstract

The relation between awareness of sexual partner's HIV serostatus and unprotected sex was examined in HIV clinic enrollees. Increased condom use was associated with knowing that a partner was HIV-negative (adjusted odds ratio = 5.99; P < 0.001) versus not knowing partner's status. Partner testing may increase condom use in discordant couples.
