I am looking for most recent HIV Sentinel Surveillance Reports (sometimes referred to as ANC Surveillance Reports) from a number of countries. I would be grateful if anyone who has them could post to this site or email to me at

The countries I am interested in are:
South Africa
Lesotho
Swaziland
Botswana
Zambia
Zimbabwe

Many thanks, Karen

Hi Karen,
Not sure if this paper can be of help "Conducting Unlinked Anonymous
HIV Surveillance in Developing Countries: Ethical, Epidemiological,
and Public Health Concerns"
In PLoSMed, full article under:

Hi Karen,
I'm not sure if this would be useful to you, but if you would like, we would
be happy to share our ANC surveillance data with you. We have data dating
from 1999 to present (n ~= 20,000 tested women) at Howard Hospital in rural
northern Zimbabwe. These are not official MOH data though (which differ
slightly depending on which report you use), so I'm not sure it will serve
your purposes depending on what you are looking for.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss this further (
).
Thanks very much.

Cheers, -Dan

Hi Karen

The UNAIDS 2007 report (http://data.unaids.org/pub/Report/2008/JC1526_epibriefs_subsaharanafrica_en.pdf) has the data from 2006. For the national 2007 data, you might want to try contacting the respective MOHs or UNAIDS to determine if the data have been officially released.
