Sexual and Reproductive Health in HIV Serodiscordant Couples

CC Makwe, OF Giwa-Osagie


Serodiscordant couples are a significant source of new HIV infection in sub-Sahara Africa. The prevention of HIV transmission to the uninfected partner should be an integral part of their health care. Serodiscordant couples desire pregnancy, treatment for infertility, effective family planning services, sexual health screening, and so on. This paper reviews the sexual and reproductive health needs of heterosexual serodiscordant couples, based on current evidence and recommendations. Afr J Reprod Health 2013 (Special Edition); 17[4]: 99-106).
