Multiple sexual partners, previous induced abortions and
hospital/clinic delivery seem to increase the risk of HIV infection in
pregnant women in this environment.
Background: Stable heterosexual relationships are a major determinant of the HIV epidemic and seroprevalence rate of HIV amongst antenatal women is a reflection of what is happening in the larger society.
Pregnancy performance and newborn outcome between adolescents and older women receiving early
and similar antenatal care showed minimal differences with only an increase rate of urinary tract infection and a lower rate of Caesarean section in the adolescents.
Objective: To investigate pregnancy performance and newborn outcome between adolescents and older women receiving adequate and similar antenatal care.
