this is the voa special english development report.

an unidentified couple in south africa. the couple's hiv status is not known.

a common belief about aids and marriage is that husbands are more likely to infect wives than the other way around. generally speaking this may be true. but a researcher has found that women may be responsible for more infections than experts have thought.

vinod mishra at macro international, a research group in the united states, led a study of married couples in africa. he studied what are known as discordant couples. this meant one partner had h.i.v., the virus that causes aids, while the other did not.

he examined population records and medical information from eleven african countries. he found that in four of these eleven countries, women were the infected partners in a majority of cases.

this was true in sixty-two percent of couples in ivory coast and kenya. wives were also the majority of infected partners in ethiopia and cameroon.
