Disparities in the quality of HIV care when using US department of health and human services indicators

Academic Article

Abstract

  • We estimated US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)-approved human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) indicators. Among patients, 71% were retained in care, 82% were prescribed treatment, and 78% had HIV RNA ≤200 copies/mL; younger adults, women, blacks, and injection drug users had poorer outcomes. Interventions are needed to reduce retention- and treatment-related disparities. © 2014 The Author 2014. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Infectious Diseases Society of America.
