The concept of indicator disease guided testing is an approach by which health care practitioners can be encouraged to test more patients based on suspicion of HIV. Little evidence on HIV prevalence exists for various conditions and diseases where HIV prevalence is thought to be higher than in the general population.

The HIV in Europe pilot study assessed HIV prevalence in 8 indicator diseases in specific populations. The study included 17 centres in 14 countries and enrolled 7000 people presenting with an indicator disease.

Potential indicator diseases surveyed in the pilot phase:
Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Malignant Lymphoma
Cervical or anal dysplasia or cancer
Herpes Zoster
Hepatitis B or C virus infection
Ongoing mononucleosis-like illness
Leukocytopenia or thrombocytopenia
Seborrheic dermatitis / exanthema
