Survival and Predictors of Mortality among Adults on Antiretroviral Therapy in Selected Public Hospitals in Harar, Eastern Ethiopia

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the world’s leading infectious killer, with an estimated 2 million Acquired Immuno- Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) deaths occurring in 2008 alone. At the end of 2008, an estimated 33.4 million people worldwide were living with HIV. That same year, some 2.7 million people became newly infected with the virus. More than 95% of all HIV-positive people are in low- and middle-income countries. Most resource-limited countries have embarked on national antiretroviral programs to treat as many HIV positive individuals as possible. The implementation of these programs, in resourcelimited settings is based on a public health approach that delivers comprehensive HIV care. These strategies maximizes the survival of HIV infected persons through standardized sequencing of available ARVs delivered to individuals through simplified approaches supported by clinical and basic laboratory monitoring.
