  1. Estimating the seroincidence of HIV-1 in the general adult population in Kigali, Rwanda.

    Article - En anglais


    To estimate the seroincidence of HIV-1 infection in the general adult population of Kigali, Rwanda.


    Repeated standarized cross-sectional studies.


    Two urban prenatal clinics.


    A total of 4486 consecutive pregnant women consulting in 1989 and 1990.

    Main outcome measures

    Prevalence of HIV-1 antibodies.


    HIV seropositivity increased by 3-5% annually over this period, indicating that it has not reached a plateau in this sentinel population.

    The percentage infection rates, calculated using two complementary methods, were 26.2-30.7% in 1990.

    Extrapolating these results to the general population of Kigali, we estimate that 2300-3800 new infections in young women and 3600-6100 new infections in young men occur annually among the total population of 350 000 in Kigali.
