About the Edition

India is experiencing an HIV-1 epidemic. HIV-1 sentinel surveillance systems are in place but analyses of these data have been limited. This thesis has three objectives, to describe: trends in HIV-1 seroprevalence among 281,978 antenatal clinic attendees from 2000 to 2003 in different regions, potential biases with these data and associations between HIV-1 status and risk factors.In the south, among attendees aged 15 to 24 years, a significant decrease was observed from 2000 to 2003 (1.7%-1.2%) (p=0.04). The same pattern was seen among urban, migrant and illiterate attendees. In other regions, no clear trend was observed. Characteristics of attendees did not change substantially over time with respect to age, education, and migrant status. Syphilis status was the only factor significantly associated with HIV-1 status in all regions. Declines in HIV-1 seroprevalence, exclusively among young attendees in the south, suggest prevention efforts in that region may be working.

Objective To determine to what extent antenatal clinic (ANC)‐based estimates reflect HIV prevalence trends among men and women in a high prevalence urban population.. Methods Examination of data from serial population‐based HIV surveys in (n = ), (n = ) and (n = ), and ANC‐based surveillance in (n = ), (n = ) and (n = ) in the same site Cited by:   One of the two types of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. AIDS is the most advanced stage of HIV infection. HIV-1 is transmitted through direct contact with HIV-infected body fluids, such as blood, semen, and vaginal fluids, or from a mother who has HIV-1 to her child during pregnancy, delivery, or breastfeeding (through breast milk). HIV-1 is responsible for the majority of HIV infections.

Methods: Trends in HIV prevalence in local ANC attendees and adults aged 15–49 years in towns, agricultural estates, and villages were compared using five rounds of parallel ANC (N = ) and general-population surveys (N = 10 ) and multivariable log-linear regression. Changes in the age pattern of HIV prevalence and the age distribution of ANC.

Combined HIV seroprevalence rates were % for Agomanya, the most rural community, % for Akwatia, and % for Nkawkaw, the most urbanized community. HIV-1 infection alone accounted for % of cases, compared with % and % for HIV-2 and dual infection, respectively. In a multivariable model, the .
