Family Physicians and HIV Media Boost Confidence in Accessing Care

Confidence in accessing HIV care and prevention services was highest among people who went to two sources for their HIV information: their primary care provider and the HIV media. By contrast, that confidence dropped significantly if the respondent was bisexual or if their primary source of HIV information was family members. What’s more, having a primary care provider alone wasn’t what predisposed people to have good access to care and prevention. Yes, people who had access to primary care were seven times more confident that they could also access HIV care and prevention services. People who turned to family members for HIV information, even if they had a primary care provider, were seven times less confident that they could get HIV care or prevention services if they needed them.
