International Journal of Epidemiology 37(6): 1274-1286

PMID: 18701578

DOI: 10.1093/ije/dyn161

Background: Population-based data on risk factors associated with HIV are not readily available from India. This understanding, and an estimate of the impact of addressing behavioural factors on reducing HIV, would be useful. Methods: We interviewed a population-based sample of 12 617 persons 15-49 years old from 66 rural and urban clusters in Guntur district in the south Indian state of Andhra Pradesh and tested their dried blood spots for HIV.
