HIV AIDS Late presenters

Sažetak
There are limited data on how HIV prevention interventions affect individuals presenting to care in settings with a low-level HIV epidemic. We examined whether interventions undertaken during the Croatian Global Fund Project in 2004-2006 had an influence on patients entering care. The number of men who have sex with men (MSM) presenting in 2004-2006 (n = 86) was 59% higher than in 2001-2003 (n = 54) ; in heterosexual patients the increase was 14% (n = 51 in 2001-2003 ; n = 58 in 2004-2006). MSM presented at a younger age (median 32 years) in 2004-2006 than in 2001-2003 (median 36 years). Late presentation to care was found in 28% of MSM and in 59% of heterosexual patients in 2004-2006. MSM were less frequently late presenters in 2004-2006 compared with 2001-2003 (odds ratio, 0.48 ; 95% confidence interval, 0.24 to 0.99 ; P = 0.046). Additional strategies for earlier initiation of care must be developed for MSM and particularly for heterosexual patients.
