S. (81Ð83). Currently, the transmission rates have been reduced to as low as 2% or less with the addition of maternal antiretroviral treatment during pregnancy for maternal health, improved obstetrical practices including Caesariansection and rapid testing in labor and delivery, and the emergence of effective short-course interventions in labor and delivery for women who have little or no prenatal care (84Ð87). Other categories of transmission risks have been reported but they occur much less frequently in the population and they involve unusual sexual behaviors or exposures to blood or body ßuids.

These young ages represent the highest risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV because rates of partner change and of sexually transmitted infections that potentiate HIV spread are highest in young adult age groups (63). Following infection, a small proportion of individuals progress rapidly to AIDS (64). However, the majority of AIDS cases are diagnosed in their mid-thirties, consistent with models of the natural history of HIV which estimate the median incubation period from infection to AIDS-deÞning opportunistic illnesses to be about 10 years (Fig.

During 2001, 43,158 AIDS cases were reported to CDC (5). 3% of cumulative reported AIDS cases. e. reporting by patient name) HIV infection case surveillance. S. However, additional data will become available in future from the remaining geographic 9 areas which have either implemented HIV case reporting using a patient code, or a hybrid name-to-code system, or are expected imminently to implement HIV reporting (61). S. Demographic Characteristics From statistical models based on the distribution of ages at AIDS incidence in the absence of treatment, it has been estimated that the vast majority of new HIV infections occur among adults < 30 years old, with as many as half of all infections occurring in those under 25 (55,62).
