Pregnant women were asked to undergo a HIV test in two hospitals, one maternity clinic (n = 12.784; 1988-1993) and one abortion clinic (n = 2089; 1990-1993) in Amsterdam, in order to establish trends in HIV prevalence. Participation rates were 92.4% and 84.4%, respectively. Among pregnant women the overall HIV prevalence was 0.27% (0.04% for pregnant women without a known HIV risk and 2.6% for women with a known HIV risk) and in the abortion clinic the overall HIV prevalence was 0.91%. The HIV prevalence over the years remained fairly constant. In the most recent years a slight rise was noticed in the HIV prevalence in the group pregnant women with a known HIV risk caused by an increase in the number of women from AIDS endemic countries in this group
