Author
Abimpaye M, Kirk CM, Iyer HS, Gupta N, Remera E, Mugwaneza P, Law MR

Nearly a quarter of a million children have acquired HIV, prompting the implementation of new protocols-Option B and B+-for treating HIV+ pregnant women. While efficacy has been demonstrated in randomized trials, there is limited real-world evidence on the impact of these changes. Using longitudinal, routinely collected data we assessed the impact of the adoption of WHO Option B in Rwanda on mother to infant transmission.

In Rwanda, HIV prevalence among adults aged 15–49 years has been stable at 3% since 2005. The aim of this study was to characterise HIV incidence across Rwanda.

The findings suggested multiple breakouts, with multiple seroconversions occurring in three villages and two households. Incidence was higher in adults aged 36–45 years relative to those aged 16–25, higher in western province relative to the northern province, and higher in urban areas than in rural areas.

Webinar

Facility- and community-based HIV services face many challenges in safeguarding the health and well-being of infants and children, both those who are HIV-positive and those who are affected by the epidemic. In this webinar, Project SOAR will present evidence from studies that examine strategies for improving the organization and delivery of HIV-related health and social services from birth to early adolescence.
