  1. Risk factors associated with prevalent HIV-1 infection among pregnant women in Rwanda.

    Article - En anglais

    This study evaluated risk factors associated with prevalent HIV-1 infection among pregnant women in a semi-rural but densely populated area surrounding the town of Butare in Rwanda.

    Overall seroprevalence was 9.3% in 5690 pregnant women who sought antenatal care at one of five health centres.

    Factors associated with higher seroprevalence of HIV-1 included history of multiple sexual partners, history of at least one sexually transmitted disease (STD), relatively high socioeconomic status (SES), being unmarried, young age at first pregnancy, and low gravidity.
