  1. Geographic and temporal stability of HIV seroprevalence among pregnant women in Bujumbura, Burundi.

    Article - En anglais


    To establish whether HIV seroprevalence in Bujumbura is stable or continuing to increase.


    HIV seroprevalence data among pregnant women from 1986 were compared with comparable data from 1991 -1992.


    HIV seroprevalence among antenatal clinic attendees at three sites was 10.5, 28.0 and 11.9% in 1986, compared with 7.7, 25.6 and 12.4%, respectively, in 1991-1992.

    A weighted least squares analysis showed significant differences in HIV seroprevalence between the different sites (khi2, 71.71; P>0.0001), but no evidence of any differences between the 1986 and the 1991-1992 prevalence levels (khi2, 0.51; P=0.6).
