Prevalence and incidence of HIV infection, trends, and risk factors among persons aged 15-64 years in Kenya: results from a nationally representative study. Enhanced HIV surveillance using demographic, behavioral, and biologic data from national surveys can provide information to evaluate and respond to HIV epidemics efficiently. From October 2012 to February 2013, we conducted a two-stage cluster sampling survey of persons aged 18 months to 64 years in 9 geographic regions in Kenya. Participants answered questionnaires and provided blood for HIV testing. We estimate HIV prevalence, HIV incidence, describe trends in HIV prevalence over the past five years, and identify factors associated with HIV infection. This analysis is restricted to persons aged 15 to 64 years.
