ABSTRACT: A total of 19023 blood donors were screened for HIV antibodies by ELISA from 1987 to 1993. One hundred and five donors were found to be positive (0.55 percent). The seropositivity increased from 0.43 percent in 1987 to 1.14 percent in 1993. Most of the donors (15219) were replacement donors (79.5 percent), of whom 90 (0.59 percent) were positive. Among professional donors screened the seropositivity was the highest (0.67 percent).
