Abstract

Objective: To compare the vaginal microbiota of women living with HIV (WLWH) to the vaginal microbiota of women with recurrent bacterial vaginosis (BV) and healthy women without HIV to determine if there are differences in the vaginal microbiome, what factors influence these differences, and to characterize HIV clinical parameters including viral load and CD4 count in relation to the vaginal microbiome.
