The HIV Risk profile presents secondary (public and non-public) data on HIV epidemic together with associated risk factors in the Mooi Mpofana sub district, in uMgungundlovu district in KZN. The profile is intended to give Mooi Mpofana Local AIDS Council or any other local planning groups a thorough understanding of the epidemic and risk in the sub district. By showing who is becoming infected and who is living with the disease and the location, the profile helps identify the people who are in need of prevention and care services, both those who are infected and those at risk.
The profile highlights factors that influence the risks1 of HIV infection. Such factors include the socio-economic status e.g. structural measures of poverty; sexual risk behaviours such as condom use, multiple sexual partnerships and transactional sex. Data on risks exposure or mode of transmission2, where available, shows the prominent mode of HIV infection in a given population in a given service area and/or administrative area. The same applies to data on exposure to psychoactive substances, report or history of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). These will be presented if available.
The risk factors are explored within the categories of the socio-demographic (e.g., age, sex, race, educational status, location (Wards).
