  • 45% of married HIV positive people have partners who are not currently infected, therefore making the issue of discordance in marriage a great risk.
  • Analysis of the 2007 MoT study, revealed that recent infections are high amongst men 35 – 44yrs (40.1%) while recent infections for women 15 – 34 peak at over 65%.
