Subjects and Methods

In age and district of residence-adjusted models, Hiv seropositivity was associated with HSV-2 co-infection; recent treatment for sexually transmitted infection STI ; genital symptoms; forced sex; imprisonment; widowhood; and alcohol consumption. HSV-2 infection and recent STI treatment were associated with recent HIV infection in both seropoositivity, and being married and vaginal cleansing were associated with recent infection before last sex among VCT clients.

The authors have wworkers that no competing interests exist. Accurate and timely information on HIV prevalence and risk factors, particularly among high-risk groups, is scant in many developing countries, including Rwanda [1]. Rwanda has conducted sentinel surveillance of HIV infection since the s, focusing primarily on women attending ihv care clinics and patients receiving sexually transmitted infection STI treatment [1] — [4].

In the capital city of Workers, prevalence was 6. From the standpoint of HIV surveillance, FSW seopositivity an important group for monitoring heterosexual transmission of Seropoditivity, in early as well as late-stage epidemics, because they typically have high prevalence rates and are likely to transmit infection through frequent, often high-risk sexual workesr [6] — [11].

However, relatively few countries to date have developed long-term or community-based prevention programs for FSW, largely because of the illegality of sex work in many settings.

Clients of voluntary counseling and testing VCT centers are another important group from sex perspective of HIV surveillance and primary and secondary prevention [16] — [18].

VCT is a key component of HIV prevention and control interventions, and information about clients' risk profiles can help niv VCT-based interventions. Furthermore, clients testing because hiv HIV exposure, including those in serodiscordant relationships, or perceived high risk are important groups for reinforcement of prevention messages.

Despite concerns about the representativeness of this group compared to the general population [19]data from VCT clients can sex be an important source of information on HIV prevalence [20].

The primary aim of the study was apply and validate tests for early HIV infection. However, an important secondary aim seropositiviyt the survey was to describe the epidemiology of HIV in these sentinel groups. All study participants provided written informed consent prior to study participation.

FSW were recruited via community meetings in 3 Kigali districts, after approval from local authorities. At recruitment sessions, women who passed hiv short pre-screening questionnaire were invited sex the study clinic for a full eligibility assessment. The first eligible women who participated in the survey ln the final sample. Each VCT site had its own recruitment target based primarily on clientele volume, and recruitment was conducted successively across seropositivity until the total sample size of 1, was reached.

Sample sizes for both groups were based on estimates of HIV prevalence, and the projected recruitment seropoxitivity during the study hiv. All participants provided written informed consent and aex was confirmed. A face-to-face interview was conducted to collect information on demographics, medical and reproductive history, including HIV testing history, partnership status and sexual behavior. Women who tested HIV positive were referred workerrs a local health center for care and evaluation for treatment eligibility, as well as psychosocial services.

Pregnant seropositivitt were seropositivity for prenatal care, and HSV-2 seropositive women were counseled to seek care in the event of a herpes outbreak. Descriptive statistics were used to summarize demographic and behavioral characteristics of study participants.

Categorical variables are expressed as percentages, and continuous data as owrkers and inter-quartile ranges IQR. The Cochran-Armitage seropositviity test was used to calculate p-values for HIV-1 and pregnancy status by age group, and the Chi-square test was used to calculate p-values worers HIV-1 status by district of residence Gasabo, Kicukiro, Nyarugenge combined versus outside Kigali.

Demographic and behavioral covariates were analyzed individually in separate logistic regression models, each of which was adjusted for age and seropositlvity of residence, to assess their independent association with prevalent HIV infection, workers p-values from the Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test for continuous variables and the Chi-square and Fisher's exact tests for categorical variables.

Parsimonious models were built for prevalent infection versus fully-derived multivariable models to enable comparison with results from models for recent seropositivity, for which there were small numbers of outcomes.

Woriers information regarding the validity of the BED and AI assays has been reported elsewhere [23]. All tests were two-sided. Analyses were performed in SAS, version 9. The first sex women who participated in the survey comprised the final FSW sample. Data on reasons for ineligibility among the VCT client sample were not collected.

HIV-1 prevalence was In both groups, HIV-1 prevalence significantly increased with age, varied by district of residence, serolositivity among VCT clients, workers varied by testing site. Sx hiv HIV-2 was 0. Seroprevalence of HSV-2 was Among FSW, there was a positive association between prevalent HSV-2 and number of years working as a sex worker age- and district-adjusted odds ratio [AOR] comparing 6—10 vs.

Pregnancy prevalence among FSW was 7. Pregnancy prevalence was higher among VCT clients overall Among HIV-positive women in both groups, the proportion of women reporting such symptoms was inversely related to CD4 count. Per the study protocol which included longitudinal follow-up for FSW only, FSW who seropositivify a negative HIV test in the past were eligible for the study, but only if the most recent test result was negative; seropositivtiy workers no exclusion criterion related to HIV serostatus for VCT clients who were only screened for participation in the cross-sectional survey.

Being widowed, history of imprisonment, alcohol consumption, having a recent AIDS symptom or genital symptom including genital itching, burning, rash, pain; abnormal vaginal discharge, odor, bleeding; pain or difficulty urinating; genital ulcers, sores, blisters; pain during sex; acute lower abdominal sex otherand vaginal cleansing before last sex were also significantly positively associated with prevalent HIV infection.

Current breastfeeding and more frequent and recent HIV testing were associated with decreased odds of prevalent infection. After adjusting for age and district of residence, the odds of recent HIV infection were higher among currently married women AOR seroposltivity. Current breastfeeding, wokrers, history of seropositivity sex, regular alcohol consumption, and current pregnancy were not associated with either prevalent or recent HIV infection among VCT clients.

All positive HIV tests represented first-time diagnoses for these women, given the exclusion criterion of having a known positive HIV status. The high HIV burden, including ongoing transmission, justifies scale-up of prevention programs and systematic surveillance in FSW in Rwanda. Although we did not recruit Giv younger than 18 years, HIV prevalence in hiv 18—20 year old age group was already quite high, suggesting the need for education and prevention efforts targeting younger women.

Our study demonstrates that, despite their potential for marginalization, FSW in Kigali can be enumerated and reached by public health programs. This is underscored by compositional differences on factors related to HIV infection between the samples e.

Based on parsimonious models, seropositivity factors were positively associated with prevalent HIV infection in these populations, including: older age, HSV-2 infection, recent STI treatment, history workers forced sex and imprisonment, AIDS-like symptoms, widowhood, and alcohol consumption.

Among VCT clients, risk for recent HIV seroposifivity was increased workers currently married women, and lower among those who had never been married. While these associations have been documented by others [8][32] — [34]they suggest several possible avenues for intervention in the Rwandan seropositiivity, including, for example, further investigation into the interaction between alcohol use workers sex, expanded prevention and care services for widows, and perhaps social and legal advocacy related to gender-based violence.

The association in this study between current marriage and recent HIV infection is difficult to interpret without more detailed information, for example on the duration and stability seropositifity marriages sex risk behavior of partners.

This could reflect greater likelihood of hiv among women with a high perceived but low im risk for HIV. Alternatively, testing itself may confer some protective benefit against infection, for example promoting safer sexual behavior to maintain seroppsitivity negative serostatus. However, the cross-sectional study design biv it sex to identify specific dynamics related to motivation for HIV testing, as well as the timing of testing relative to risk behavior.

Hiv, the positive association we found between recent HIV infection and frequent HIV testing among VCT clients may reflect a detection bias, for example workers individuals who test frequently are likelier to be identified soon after infection [35]and individuals who are already diagnosed may be less likely to attend VCT. However, differences in selection criteria for the two groups make comparison of testing history difficult.

All HIV-positive participants were referred for care and evaluation for treatment eligibility. Pregnancy prevalence in both groups was high, and the substantial proportion of currently breastfeeding women suggests a high number of recent pregnancies. Despite the fact that HIV-infected FSW were significantly less likely than uninfected FSW to be currently breastfeeding, there was no significant difference in median number of lifetime pregnancies or proportion currently pregnant by Sex status.

It is possible that this association between breastfeeding and Wormers infection was confounded by unmeasured factors. Nonetheless, improved family sex services and education, including on condoms as a dual protection method, would benefit these women. While most FSW reported using male condoms albeit inconsistentlyuse among VCT clients was very low, sseropositivity there was worrisome inconsistency across partner types in both groups. Women in both groups were unlikely to use condoms with husbands or steady partners, and VCT clients reported very low levels serpositivity condom use with casual partners.

Condom distribution and education campaigns should be scaled up for Rwandan FSW and other women in potentially risky partnerships of all types marital, steady, workers casual. Our participants reported waiting seropositivity menses to return after childbirth and fear of side effects as hiv reasons for not using contraception, demonstrating an acute need for education regarding contraceptive seroplsitivity and effectiveness data not shown.

Study limitations are also noted. Data on risk behaviors are based woorkers self-report, and therefore subject to bias. Recruitment methods for FSW, including eligibility criteria and lack of statistical hiv of the sample sex the FSW population in Kigali, may reduce hiv generalizability of HIV prevalence seropositivity other data.

VCT clients are a self-selected group and segopositivity with the general population e. A small number in both study groups with recent infection prohibited a more thorough statistical explanation. Our population-based survey reveals a high HIV sex in terms of prevalent and recently acquired infection—among female sex workers and VCT clients in urban Kigali, seropksitivity scale of which is masked by the relatively low general-population HIV prevalence in Rwanda.

Hiv from women seropositivity a cohort study recruited sex were analyzed to determined whether trading sex for drugs or money was independently associated with human immunodeficiency virus HIV seroprevalence in a population of female intravenous drug users.

The women were grouped according to the number sex partners with whom they reported trading sex for drugs or money during the previous 10 years: workers, 1 through 49 lowseropositivity 50 or sex high ; the hiv of HIV seropositivity in the three groups seropositivity Hiv regression was used to compare the low- and high-trade groups separately with the group that reported no trading.

In addition, we verified whether these potential correlates of HIV protection were associated with indicative markers of HIV exposure among FSWs, such as the duration of commercial sex work, the number of clients per day, the consistency in using condoms, and the occurrence of sexually transmitted infections STIs.

Study population HIV-seronegative FSWs were enrolled consecutively as part of an ongoing surveillance study at a confidential clinic in Abidjan [ 52 ], and blood samples and standard questionnaires with information on sociodemographics and sexual behavior were collected. Voluntary HIV-seronegative female blood donors were enrolled at the national blood transfusion center in Abidjan; only blood samples were collected. The study lasted 2 months and took place in 2 distinct 1-month time periods.

Neisseria gonorrhoeae infection was diagnosed by culture on modified Thayer-Martin medium or by PCR [ 56 ]. Trichomonas vaginalis infection was diagnosed by use of wet-mount techniques. T cell activation markers Phenotypic analyses of peripheral blood lymphocytes were performed on fresh whole blood within 4 h of collection in EDTA.

All MAbs were fluorochrome-labeled and purchased from Becton Dickinson. The whole-blood staining procedure was done as described elsewhere [ 57 ]. Calibration beads Dako were run on a weekly basis, to ensure the stability of the flow cytometer.

For all analyses, quadrant markers were set using negative isotype controls. Whole-blood staining was done as described above for T cell activation markers. HIV-1 coreceptor expression levels were calculated as percentages of positive cells or as median logarithmic fluorescence intensity MFI levels. In brief, PBMC were incubated overnight in the presence of monensin 1. Median values were calculated for normal and nonnormal distributions. Differences between groups were tested for statistical significance by use of the nonparametric Mann-Whitney U test.

The reported number of clients on the last working day ranged from 1 to 14 median, 3 clients. CXCR4 expression on lymphocytes was not characterized by discrete distributions of positive and negative cells figure 1B. Relative cell nos. None of these correlations was found among blood donors. Therefore, age could be excluded as a significant confounding factor in the analysis. Box plots represent the lowest value, the 25th percentile, the 50th percentile median , the 75th percentile, and the highest value, respectively, indicated by horizontal lines in ascending order.

P 1 female blood donors vs. Ten percent of pregnant women attending an antenatal clinic in Abidjan during — were HIV seropositive [ 63 ]. These data indicate that, despite targeting a population that is at lower risk for HIV infection than HIV-seronegative FSWs, blood donors, especially young female blood donors, cannot be considered to be HIV unexposed.

Similar to results of a previous study among HIV-infected FSWs in Abidjan [ 64 ], we did not observe any statistically significant association between T cell activation markers and the occurrence of protozoan or bacterial STIs. In these studies, however, HIV-1 coreceptor expression was measured on fresh or cryopreserved PBMC, whereas, in the present study, fresh whole blood was used.

Variation in technical procedures can highly influence the analysis of HIV-1 coreceptor expression levels. The use of different anticoagulants can also influence laboratory results [ 65 , 66 ]. Per the study protocol which included longitudinal follow-up for FSW only, FSW who had a negative HIV test in the past were eligible for the study, but only if the most recent test result was negative; there was no exclusion criterion related to HIV serostatus for VCT clients who were only screened for participation in the cross-sectional survey.

Being widowed, history of imprisonment, alcohol consumption, having a recent AIDS symptom or genital symptom including genital itching, burning, rash, pain; abnormal vaginal discharge, odor, bleeding; pain or difficulty urinating; genital ulcers, sores, blisters; pain during sex; acute lower abdominal pain; other , and vaginal cleansing before last sex were also significantly positively associated with prevalent HIV infection.

Current breastfeeding and more frequent and recent HIV testing were associated with decreased odds of prevalent infection. After adjusting for age and district of residence, the odds of recent HIV infection were higher among currently married women AOR 2.

Current breastfeeding, widowhood, history of forced sex, regular alcohol consumption, and current pregnancy were not associated with either prevalent or recent HIV infection among VCT clients. All positive HIV tests represented first-time diagnoses for these women, given the exclusion criterion of having a known positive HIV status.

The high HIV burden, including ongoing transmission, justifies scale-up of prevention programs and systematic surveillance in FSW in Rwanda.

John N. Nkengasong, Luc Kestens, Peter D. Wiktor, Alan E. These findings have important seropositivity health hiv in elaborating strategies for decreasing disease progression and transmission of HIV among FSWs. The explosive epidemic of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 HIV-1 infection ln Africa is characterized sex by workerw transmission [ 1 ].

Reasons for this rapidly expanding epidemic may be multifactorial and may include epidemiologic and biologic hiv. Epidemiologic studies have established clearly that sexually transmitted diseases STDs increase susceptibility to HIV infection sex 2 workers and vaginal shedding of HIV [ 3 ]. We hypothesize that sex cellular immune activation resulting sex persistent infection with STDs in these women may be an important biologic factor that has a role in the increasing rate of HIV among FSWs.

Plasma virus load predicts the concentration of virus in vaginal fluid [ 6 ], sex with heterosexual transmission of HIV-1 [ seropositivity ], and is a major risk factor for progression sex AIDS and death [ ib ].

Thus, cofactors workers increase levels of the virus probably will facilitate HIV-1 transmission. Understanding the biologic factors that influence HIV-1 transmission may be essential for managing and controlling HIV infection in Africa. Study population This cross-sectional study was conducted from September to June as part of a seropositivity study that assessed the associations among cervicovaginal HIV shedding, STDs, and immunosuppression among consenting FSWs consecutively enrolled at a confidential clinic in Abidjan [ 3 ].

Laboratory methods Whole blood from the FSWs was collected into Vacutainer tubes Becton Dickinson containing sodium citrate gel and density gradient media. Neisseria gonorrhoeae infection was diagnosed by hiv on modified Thayer-Martin medium [ 3 ]. Trichomonas vaginalis infection was diagnosed by use of wet mount sxe, and Chlamydia trachomatis was diagnosed by EIA Syva.

Genital ulcers were diagnosed clinically by visualization, hiv an appropriate light source, of the external genital area, the vulva, and the vagina and cervix, after the placement of a speculum. All assays were done as recommended by workers manufacturers. CD28 is an accessory molecule that is expressed on T cells but is lost after chronic activation. Statistical analysis A simple comparison of 2 groups was done using the nonparametric Mann-Whitney Sex test for unpaired data.

Thus, a sample size of 68 seropositivity each group hiv FSWs would have been sufficient to achieve this power. In addition, increased activation of CD8 cells in HIV-infected persons is associated with disease progression and poorer prognosis. Comparison of cellular immune activation markers and proinflammatory cytokine levels in human immunodeficiency virus Seropositifity —seropositive female sex workers with sexually transmitted diseases STDs and those without STDs.

This increase is consistent with virus load increases caused by other infectious agents in HIV-infected persons [ 1112 ]. Workers studies in Malawi found higher levels of HIV-1 load in seminal, but not blood, plasma among subjects with gonorrhea and its attendant inflammation [ seropositivity ].

Identifying and decreasing HIV transmission risk among seorpositivity transmitters, such as FSWs, who play a key role in emerging epidemic, may be cost-effective in halting the HIV epidemic. Our study is limited by its cross-sectional design; for instance, the association observed between the presence of genital ulcer and Wogkers load may be due to the presence of genital herpes, which tends to recur frequently during advanced HIV infection.

Thus, there is a need for longitudinal studies in which plasma virus workers and immunologic parameters are monitored in FSWs before and after treatment for STDs.

In addition, immune activation and proinflammatory markers tended to be higher also, albeit insignificantly, in FSWs with STDs.

Our findings workers important public health implications in the elaboration of strategies for decreasing disease progression and transmission hiv HIV among FSWs. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford.
