J Waweru, O Mugenda, E Kuria. Anemia is a major public health problem in Africa affecting over 80% of women in many countries. A case-control study was conducted in Pumwani Maternity Hospital in Nairobi Kenya. The HIV status was ascertained through HIV-antibody tests using Determine, Uni- Gold and Tie-Breaker reagents. Cases of 57 seropositive and controls of 57 seronegative pregnant women were randomly and co-currently selected. Their hemoglobin (Hb), demographic, socio-economic characteristics were determined. A 24-hour dietary recall and food frequency were used to determine the food consumption pattern.

More than half of the pregnant women in the world have hemoglobin levels indicative of anemia. Knowledge of the current situation of the condition in our environment is necessary. This knowledge will motivate antenatal caregivers toward early detection and prompt management of anemia in pregnancy.

The book explores the increased burden of anemia among the pregnant women in developing countries who are also infected with HIV/AIDS. It presents and discusses research findings that show that HIV-infected pregnant women are more than two times likely to be anemic than HIV-uninfected counterparts, (Relative risk=2.33). It draws conclusion from the findings to indicate that HIV/AIDS infection is associated with low Hemoglobin levels and higher anemia prevalence and severity among pregnant women. It calls for pre-natal nutrition care system that emphasizes improved consumption of essential nutrients including iron of high biological value and implementation of interventions tailored to check anemia prevalence and severity among pregnant women within the context of HIV/AIDS pandemic and low socio-economic settings.
