The objective of the study was to monitor the HIV prevalence in the years 1988-1991 among pregnant women in the Amsterdam region, visitors to an abortion clinic and 3 outpatient infertility clinics.
All women attending these clinics were asked to participate in the study on a voluntary basis and were tested with informed consent.
The women were questioned about risk-bearing behaviour of themselves and their sexual partner (s).
In the period 1988-1991, of the 23,827 eligible pregnant women, 22,165 women participated (93.0%). Twenty-seven women were found to be positive for HIV antibodies (0.12%, 95% CI : 0.08% - 0.17%), of whom twenty belonged to a known HIV risk group or had a partner who belonged to one of these groups and 7 women had no known HIV risk.
