Background Recent data from antenatal clinic (ANC) surveillance and general population surveys suggest substantial declines in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevalence in Zimbabwe.We assessed the contributions of rising mortality, falling HIV incidence and sexual behaviour change to the decline in HIV prevalence.Methods Comprehensive review and secondary analysis of national and local sources on trends in HIV prevalence, HIV incidence, mortality and sexual behaviour covering the period 1985–2007.

Recent data from ANC surveillance suggest that Zimbabwe was the first country in the southern African region to record convincing declines in HIV prevalence.A national decline in HIV prevalence is intrinsically a positive and important development because it represents a reduction in the burden of infection within the population.If maintained, it should translate into lower mortality over the next 5–10 years.However, declines in HIV incidence (new infections) and prevalence (existing infections) can occur through the natural dynamics of an epidemic.
