Contraceptive practices and fertility desires among HIV-infected and uninfected women in Kenya: results from a nationally representative study. Prevention of unplanned pregnancies is a critical element in the prevention of mother-to-child-transmission (PMTCT) of HIV, but its potential has not been fully realized. We assessed the utilization of family planning (FP) and fertility desires among women of reproductive age by HIV status. We selected a nationally representative sample of households using a stratified two-stage cluster design and surveyed women aged 15-49 years. We administered questionnaires and examined predictors of current use of FP methods and desire for children among sexually active women with known HIV infection and women who were HIV-uninfected.
