Comparison of HIV Prevalence Estimate from Sentinel Surveillance and a National Population-Based Survey in Uganda 2004-2005

Categorized Under: Health, Surveys



Published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, May 1, 2009, by Vinod Mishra and Anne Cross of ICF International and other collaborators. This study compared HIV seroprevalence estimates from Uganda's antenatal clinic (ANC) sentinel surveillance system with those for the nationally representative, population-based Uganda HIV/AIDS Sero-Behavioral Survey (UHSBS). The study concluded that while ANC sentinel surveillance remains an important tool for monitoring the HIV/AIDS epidemic, national population-based sero-surveys conducted at regular intervals can compliment ANC sentinel surveillance and can allow adjustment of ANC-based estimates.
