Stigma Remains a Significant Barrier to Routine HIV Testing by African-American Physicians, Survey Finds
Date:8/1/2011

repackaged HIV tests (42 percent).  Despite the 2006 CDC recommendations for HIV testing, many physicians said that having a government mandate requiring routine HIV testing would help them to test more (43 percent).

"Early detection of HIV is critical, and that's why it's important to raise awareness of the need for annual HIV testing as part of routine blood work," said Cedric Bright, MD, President of the NMA.  "The NMA supports and encourages its physicians in the primary care arena to adopt annual HIV testing of their patients. Together we can help make a difference in the fight against HIV."

Survey Methodology

A total of 502 surveys were completed by African-American physicians online at the NMA Conference or via email; 65 percent of respondents were NMA members. The survey consisted of 11 screening questions and 38 survey questions. The online panel surveys were collected in two waves: one in late July and early August of 2010, the second from mid-October through early November. The NMA Conference intercept surveys were collected at the conference in early August of 2010, while the post-conference email survey data were collected from mid-September to mid-October.  

Physicians had to meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • African-American practicing physician working predominantly with adults
  • Primary care physicians (general physician, family practitioner, internal medicine) or other physicians who are on the frontline of general care, such as OB/GYN
  • At least 20 percent of his or her patients must be African American
  • Must have been in practice for at least one year

The survey was funded by Janssen Therapeutics, Division of Janssen Products, LP, developed in collaboration with the NMA and conducted by Cheskin Added Value.
