abstract

  • We conclude that community viral load appears to be higher in SSA than in other regions and this may be a central driver of the massive HIV epidemics in this region. The elevated viral loads in SSA may reflect, among other factors, the high burden of co-infections or the preponderance of HIV-1 subtype C infection.
