The results of a population-based follow-up study are presented.
The baseline study which started in August 1987, was carried out to determine the prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) infection in the Kagera region of Tanzania.
A multistage cluster sampling technique was adopted in the selection of the study population.
In the followup survey which started in June 1988, members of the same study population were revisited and studied in order to determine the incidence of HIV-1 infection among those who were HIV seronegative in the initial survey.
HIV serology was conducted by using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and all positive sera were confirmed by the Western blot technique.
