Abstract In 1993, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) was the fourth leading cause of death among women aged 25-44 years in the United States (1); in addition, the incidence of AIDS is increasing more rapidly among women than men (2). Women with AIDS reported in 1994 represented 13\% of the cumulative total of 58,448 cases among women. This report presents characteristics of women and men reported with AIDS in 1994, summarizes trends in cases reported during 1985-1994, and describes findings of an HIV seroprevalence survey among childbearing women during 1989-1993.
