  1. The anthropology of sexually transmitted disease in Liberia.

    Article - En anglais

    In sub-Saharan African countries where AIDS is established, HIV transmission is primarily by means of heterosexual intercourse.

    A major co-factor in such transmission is the presence of other, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

    Efforts to limit the heterosexual transmission of HIV in Africa must therefore address the high prevalence of other, standard STDs.

    The present study attempts to establish a preliminary information base for interventions to prevent the spread of HIV in Liberia where there is relatively high incidence of standard STDs but low incidence of HIV seropositivity.
