Abstract
Abstract
This study was conducted over a period of nine months on the prevalence of HIV and the CD4+ counts among women attending selected Hospitals (Dr Musa Inuwa, General, Clinic A, IBB, and Clinic B hospitals) in Minna. A total of 500 patients were screened. Questionnaires were used to gather relevant data on sampled patients. Cyflow counter and Hematology analyzer were used to determine CD4+ and hematological parameters (Hb and WBC). Of the 500 samples, 408 tested negative while 92 tested positive, translating to a prevalence rate of 18.4%. The age group 25 34 years had the highest number of cases under HIV positive pregnant women (67.7%). The CD4 count was shown to be significantly (p < 0.05) lower in HIV positive pregnant women not on ART (146.17 29.52 cell/L), while HIV negative non-pregnant women had the highest count of 978.26 13.00 cell/L. The mean Hemoglobin concentration was similarly significantly lower in women that are HIV positive, pregnant but not on ART (7.95 0.61 g/dL) while those not pregnant and HIV negative (11.90 0.12 g/dL). However, the WBC count was significantly higher in HIV positive non-pregnant women on ART (22.212.74 109/L). The prevalence of HIV within the sampled hospitals is very high with the various factors showing close associations. It is then recommended that government and non-government organizations should intensify efforts to enlighten the populace on the need for HIV screening.

Key words: Keywords: HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus); AIDS (Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome); Prevalence; Pregnancy, Patients.
