This serologic survey was performed to determine rates of HIV-1 infection among New York City (NYC) women seeking abortions.
Anonymous unlinked blood samples were collected and analyzed for the presence of HIV-1 antibodies.
Abortion clinics were chosen for the representativeness of their patient population to all women obtaining abortions in NYC.
Blood samples and demographic information, including age group, race/ethnicity, borough of residence and type of payment were obtained from 15 abortion sites (11 clinics, four hospitals) in NYC between 1987 and 1989.
