The effect of viral load and high-density placental malaria on risk for perinatal HIV transmission, western Kenya, 1996–2001. Women with high-density placental malaria (>10,000 parasites/μL) are compared to those with low-density placental malaria (<10,000 parasites/μL, represented by the horizontal dashed line). RR, relative risk. Error bars refer to 95% confidence interval.
