  1. Two methods for assessing the risk-factor composition of the HIV-1 epidemic in heterosexual women : southeast England, 1988-1991.

    Article - En anglais


    The prevalence of HIV-1 in the heterosexual population in southeast England between 1988 and 1991 was examined using two methods.

    Design and methods

    First, district neonatal seroprevalence was compared on a geographical basis to social and demographic variables reflecting risk-factor prevalence.

    Second, over the same period eight children who developed AIDS within the first 12 months of life were born.


    The differences in seroprevalence between districts could be explained by the proportion of livebirths to women born in parts of Africa.

    An estimated 92% of neonatal seropositives could be associated with this demographic variable.
