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

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

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

    Methods

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

    Results

    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).
