HIV Care Rates Differ By Race, Sex, Age and Year in Large U.S. Study

    Methods to Measure Care Rates in People With HIV
    Methods to Measure Care Rates in People With HIV Figure 1. Successful HIV care can be determined as the proportion of people who achieve four results: (1) entering care, (2) staying in care, (3) filling an antiretroviral prescription (ARV Rx), and (4) reaching a viral load below 200 copies (defined in bullet list in text below). Researchers can use two methods to determine success rates at each stage, the dependent method and the independent method defined in the figure.
    Rates of Reaching a Low Viral Load in Three Age Groups
    Rates of Reaching a Low Viral Load in Three Age Groups Figure 2. In a study of more than 18,000 people with HIV infection, a significantly higher proportion of the oldest age group than the younger two groups reached a viral load below 200 copies in 2010, 2011, and 2012. But low viral load rates improved steadily over the 3 study years in each of the three age groups.
