Comprehensive data describing epidemiological characteristics of the human herpesvirus‐8 or Kaposi's sarcoma‐associated herpesvirus (HHV‐8 or KSHV) infection among pregnant women in a central sub‐Saharan Africa are not available. This study determined virus prevalence estimates and the risk factors associated with HHV‐8 infection. Cross‐sectional, enrollment visit data were analyzed from a prospective cohort study of perinatal transmission of HHV‐8 in Lusaka, Zambia. Exposure data were obtained… Expand
