Table 3 Simulated MTCT rates of HIV in prevalent and incident maternal population according to the observed coverage of PMTCT services in Cameroon in 2011

From: Estimating mother-to-child HIV transmission rates in Cameroon in 2011: a computer simulation approach

MTCT circumstances Estimated number of incident paediatric infections [95 % Confidence Interval] Estimated transmission rate (%)
Prevalent HIV-infected pregnant women   
Perinatal rate (<6 weeks of age) 3, 758 [3, 033–5, 077] 12.1 [8.8–15.1]
Postnatal rate (>6 weeks of age to 24 months) 3, 484 [2, 687–5, 286] 13.3 [9.3–17.8]
Postnatal rate among incident maternal infection during breastfeeding 3, 161 [2, 337–4, 679] 20.8 [14.1–26.9]
Total 10, 403 [9, 054–13, 345] 22.1 [18.6–25.2]
