Abstract

This study examined the effects of publicly modeling the HIV testing procedure on testing rates at a university health center. Thirteen models, demographically similar to the university student population, modeled the HIV counseling and testing procedure at a campus student center. The intervention was employed twice during the fall semester. HIV testing rates for that semester were compared to the two previous fall semesters. Results showed that HIV testing rates during the semester of intervention were not significantly higher than previous semesters. Results did not demonstrate a marked increase in the number of tests administered within 2 weeks following each modeling intervention. Modeling was not an effective means to increasing utilization of HIV testing centers on this university campus.
