HIV Prevention for Serodiscordant Couples
HIV, HIV prevention, serodiscordant couples
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).
