Abstract

The official view is that India's epidemics are driven, directly and indirectly, by heterosexual prostitution. Review of available evidence by researchers in India undermines this weakly supported orthodoxy and suggests that correcting weaknesses in its AIDS surveillance system can lead to a more reliable picture of HIV propagation and hence to evidence-based interventions. Contenders for leading roles in HIV transmission are under-suspected and unmeasured skin-puncturing exposures.
