Discordant Couples Study Published in ‘HIV Medicine’

The study Pregnancy and HIV transmission among HIV-discordant couples in a clinical trial in Kisumu, Kenya, was published in the British HIV Association’s HIV Medicine (2010). 

Objectives: A large proportion of new HIV infections in sub-Saharan Africa occur in stable HIV-discordant partnerships. In some couples, the strong desire to conceive a child may lead to risky behaviour despite knowledge of discordant serostatus. Our objective was to compare HIV transmission between discordant couples who did and did not conceive during participation in a clinical trial.
