Continuum of HIV Care: Results Retention in Medical Care

Of the 291,449 HIV+ individuals who received RW-funded medical care, and had visit dates available, 76% were retained in medical care (at least 2 medical care visits at least 90 days apart).

Retention in Medical Care

We analyzed the data on retention in medical care by age, race/ethnicity, gender, and insurance status. The age groups with the highest retention were children <13 years (83%), adults ≥65 years (82%), adults ages 55 to 65 years (81%).  Individuals with multiple insurance and Medicare also had retention rates ≥80% (83% and 80%, respectively).  Retention was <70% for ages 13-24 years (67%) and 25-34 years (69%).
