Hello!
I am have been searching through the DHS datasets on variables that track HIV positive status of women and children. Columns for HIV results were found to be blank for Nigeria. In relation to this information, is finding out women who received antenatal care at least four times prior to delivery and also estimate the HIV-exposed infants receiving a virological test for HIV within two months of birth. Thanks in Anticipation for your kind assistance.

Cheers,
Placid.

Following is a response from Hanna Useem, Data Processing Specialist for the Nigeria survey:

We did not collect HIV status in the NDHS 2018.
