From 1980 through 1990, the cumulative incidence of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in the District of Columbia (DC) (2713 cases per 100,000 persons) was approximately eight times that of the surrounding metropolitan area (340 per 100,000) (1). From 1980 through 1986, the AIDS epidemic primarily involved men who had sex with men; since 1986, the incidence of AIDS has been increasing among injecting-drug users (IDUs) and their sex partners (1). Although AIDS incidence in DC has been projected to increase by 34% from 1990 to 1994 (1), patterns of sexual behavior and condom use are unknown among homosexual/bisexual men, IDUs, and other heterosexuals in DC and other urban areas with a high incidence of AIDS. To obtain current data on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-related knowledge and behavior, the DC Commission of Public Health (CPH) conducted a telephone survey of DC residents regarding HIV-related knowledge, number of sex partners, and condom use during the 1-year period preceding the survey. This report summarizes results of the survey.
