HIV-Related Hospitalizations Decline

January 7, 2008

According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project's Nationwide Inpatient Sample (1998-1995), the 1995 introduction of protease inhibitors is credited not only for a drop in AIDS deaths but also a decline in HIV-related hospital stays. Hospitalizations for a primary or secondary HIV diagnosis dropped from 269,248 in 1998 to 240,461 in 2005.
