    Abstract

    The arrival of AIDS/HIV infection in the UK has conferred a new significance upon genitourinary medicine which is necessarily involved in all aspects of patient care, surveillance and prevention. HIV should now be considered a relevant issue for discussion with all presenting patients who are at-risk of contracting any sexually transmitted disease. Targetting education at individuals together with the successful implementation of other control strategies through genitourinary medicine clinics provides exceptional opportunities to inhibit the further spread of HIV infection and to reduce morbidity from other STD and related pathology in the wider community.
