Cervical Neoplasia-Associated Schistosomiasis in HIV-Infected and Uninfected South African Women

Cervical Neoplasia-Associated Schistosomiasis in HIV-Infected and Uninfected South African
Women

Epidemiologic mapping of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), urogenital schistosomiasis (UGS), and cervical cancer in sub-Saharan Africa exhibit substantial overlap. This prompted the hypothesis of a possible link between these conditions. Cross-sectional studies suggest an increased risk of HIV infection
and transmission in women with UGS. In this perspective, it is hypothesized that systematic prevention of schistosomiasis in school girls might contribute to the reduction of transmission of HIV after sexual debut.
