Alcohol use and HIV incidence among female food and recreational facility workers in Tanzania

MITU AIDS 2012 Alcohol & HIV poster-1.pdf

A growing body of literature suggests that alcohol consumption is associated with increased risk of HIV. This poster illustrates results from two studies presented by STRIVE member MITU at AIDS 2012. The research found that HIV incidence was higher among women who were identified by the AUDIT scale as problem drinkers. However, where problem drinking was identified by the CAGE scale, HIV incidence was found to be lower. The poster summarises data and key recommendations for further research.
