Congo (Brazzaville): cases and investigations

Unexpected HIV infections in children:

Unexpected HIV infections in adults, 2009: A random sample national survey in Congo tested 6,438 women aged 15-49 years for HIV. Women who said they never had a sex partner in their life (who said they were virgins) were more likely to be HIV-positive than all women: 4.2% of virgins were infected compared to 4.1% of all women.
