Population

From 2002 to 2012, the HPRU of the SAMRC participatedin five international multi-centre HIV prevention clinicaltrials. A total of 9145 consenting women were en-rolled in this combined cohort over the period of tenyears. All consenting women’s places of residence (ornearest location point to residence) were geo-coordinatedusing Geographic Positioning System (GPS) at the time ofenrolment and updated during follow-up visits. Recruitment of trial participants was from communi-ties in urban (peri-urban) and rural areas.
