Safe Pregnancy by Infectious Disease Control
Safe Pregnancy by Infectious Disease Control in the Democratic Republic of Congo - Pilot Study

Malaria and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are common in pregnant women in Africa and are important preventable causes of poor birth outcomes and maternal and infant mortality. This study investigated baseline characteristics of the population including: rates of STIs including HIV, prevalence of malaria and tuberculosis (TB) and resistance to common antimalarial drugs.

A cross-sectional observational study was conducted with 2008 pregnant women attending either Binza or Kingasani Maternity clinics in Kinshasa, DRC to determine baseline rates of STIs, TB and malaria. Data was collected for sample size calculation in a larger STI/Malaria and TB randomized controlled trial.
