    Article - En anglais


    To study in depth sexual history and sexual behaviour variables as risk factors for HIV-1 infection in a rural Ugandan population.


    Following a socioeconomic and serological survey of a rural population in Masaka District, south-west Uganda, 233 randomly selected HIV-1-positive cases and 233 negative controls matched on age and village of residence, were invited in October 1990 to participate in a case-control study.

    A total of 132 cases and 161 controls attended for in-depth investigation including an interview about sexual behaviour.


    The factor most strongly associated with increased risk of infection was a greater number of lifetime sexual partners, with odds ratios (OR) of 2.1 and 4.9 for those reporting 4-10 and 11 or more partners, respectively, compared with those reporting less than four partners.
