About the Book

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.
