The publication also found that the number of districts reporting HIV prevalence rates above the national average of about 30 percent has increased. However, only two districts record an HIV prevalence rate of more than 40 percent among pregnant women: uMgungundlovu, KwaZulu-Natal and Gert Sibande, Mpumalanga.
