    Objectives

    Evidence-based guidelines have long recommended that HIV care providers deliver HIV transmission risk-reduction (RR) services, but recent data are needed to assess their adoption.

    Methods

    We surveyed a probability sample of 1,234 U.S. HIV care providers on delivery of 9 sexual behavior- and 7 substance use-related HIV transmission RR services, and created an indicator of “adequate” delivery of services in each area, defined as performing approximately 70% or more of applicable services.

    Results

    Providers were most likely to encourage patients to disclose HIV status to all partners since HIV diagnosis (81%) and least likely to ask about disclosure to new sex and drug injection partners at follow-up visits (both 41%). Adequate delivery of sexual behavior- and substance use-related RR services was low (37% and 43%, respectively).

    Conclusion

    The majority of U.S. HIV care providers may need additional support to improve delivery of comprehensive HIV transmission RR services.
