Risk assessment and antibody testing are potential modalities through which interventions to reduce heterosexual and perinatal transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can occur. More than 98% of women attending inner-city adult gynecology, adult contraception and teen family planning clinics successfully completed self-administered HIV (AIDS) risk assessment questionnaires and received individual counseling, risk-reduction education and referral for antibody testing. Fourteen percent of the women (671/4,802) reported at least one HIV risk factor. Multiple sexual partners and intravenous drug use were the most commonly reported HIV risk factors in this population.
