Causal associations between other selected factors and observed declines in HIV prevalence in pregnant women attending antenatal sentinel surveillance sites merit consideration, and potential biases in selection would be deemed less probable if a number of conditions were met. Similar declines, for example, would need to be observed in younger age groups entering their sexual careers in other populations which are not subject to the potential biases inherent in surveying HIV prevalence in pregnant women, or in sentinel surveillance sites. Databases and reports that lend themselves to such further analysis were analyzed to the extent possible, and are reported on below.
