HIV prenatal screening in south-eastern France: differences in seroprevalence and screening policies by pregnancy outcome.
Two complementary surveys were carried out in the 89 hospital units of South-Eastern France which deal with pregnant women.
Firstly, in November 1991, medical chiefs of these units were interviewed face-to-face about their current HIV screening policy.
Secondly, between Jan 27 and March 22, 1992, all women at the end of their pregnancy attending these units were included in an anonymous unlinked seroprevalence survey, irrespective of pregnancy outcome (n = 11,056).
The goal of the research was to compare HIV prenatal screening policies and seroprevalences by pregnancy outcomes in order to contribute to the public debate initiated on that issue by the French health authorities.
