Patterns of Engagement in Care by HIV-Infected Adults: South Carolina, 2004-2006
June 9, 2009
In the current study, the authors designed a cross-sectional analysis of non-pregnant HIV-infected South Carolinians (n=13,042) from Jan. 1, 2004, to Dec. 31, 2006, to identify factors associated with HIV care utilization in the state.
"Large proportions of the South Carolina HIV-infected adult population are not consistently accessing HIV medical care," the authors found. "Targeted programs are needed to improve engagement for HIV-infected adults most likely to transition or not be in care."
