ABSTRACT
The article reports that the rates of undiagnosed HIV infection in low-risk sections of the British population are rising. Rates of HIV infection in new blood donors in Scotland are the highest since 1989. The figures show that 7.03 per 100,000 new blood donors in Scotland tested positive for HIV in 2003, compared to 6.88 per 100,000 in 2002 and 3.46 per 100,000 in 2001. In England and Wales, the rates of HIV infection in new blood donors rose to 8.23 per 100,000 in 2003. These figures indicate that rates of undiagnosed HIV may be higher in sections of the population not targeted for testing.
