Abstract

HIV transmission in serodiscordant couples continues to fuel the spread of HIV worldwide, particularly in Africa, which has the largest share of HIV cases (UNAIDS 2010). Globally, 80 % of new HIV cases among women occur through heterosexual transmission, most often from steady partners (UNAIDS 2010). Moreover, men who have sex with men (MSM) bear a disproportionately heavy burden of the HIV pandemic in low- and middle-income countries, and the majority of sexually transmitted HIV cases among MSM also stem from primary partners (UNAIDS 2010).
