Abstract

Aims – To assess the proportion of patients achieving undetectable viral loads ( 100,000 copies/mL (3.43 months, 95% CI = 2.337 to 3.663 vs. 6.11 months, 95% CI = 4.28 to 7.94; log-rank p = 0.013).

Conclusions – Achieving undetectable viral loads in HIV patients on ART is a crucial outcome that can significantly improve morbidity and mortality, as well as reduce transmission risk. This audit has identified potential barriers to achieving undetectable viral loads within 6 months, including higher baseline viral load and CD4 count at initiation of ART.
