Abbreviations. ND: not determined due to small number of observations.
Separate models performed for each outcome. Covariates reported in the existing postpartum HIV care literature were initially included in each model. Covariates which were not predictive of any of the key outcomes in bivariate or initial multivariable analyses (p>0.05) were sequentially removed and excluded from the final model if removal did not alter associations with other variables.
