Concurrent Sexual Partnerships and HIV Infection: Evidence from National Population- Based Surveys

This study uses self-reported data on sexual partnerships and biomarker data on HIV serostatus that have been collected in recent years from adult women and men (age 15-49) by nationally representative Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) and AIDS Indicator Surveys (AIS). Using information on up to three of the respondents’ most recent sexual partners, the authors evaluated and compared the prevalence of concurrent sexual partnership across countries.
