Seroprevalence of treponemal infection in rural and semi-rural communities in south-eastern Gabon



Seroprevalence of treponemal infection in rural and semi-rural communities in south-eastern Gabon



East African Medical Journal 66(6): 372-376



A sero-epidemiological study on the prevalence of treponemal infection was performed in a representative sample of adult women in rural and semi-rural communities in south-eastern Gabon. The overall prevalence of treponemal infection was 10.1% and 9.2% in the group of pregnant women. Age-adjusted prevalence rates were significantly lower in the rural than in semi-rural area, 7.7% and 12.2% respectively (p less than 0.05). This was due to the significantly lower syphilis prevalence in the age group 15-29 years in the rural area. There was no statistically difference in age-adjusted prevalence rates in women with different fertility status or pregnancy outcome.
