ASSOCIATION OF SOCIAL NEEDS WITH UNCONTROLLED VIREMIA IN PEOPLE WITH HIV

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Using a tool integrated into the electronic health record, we determined prevalence of 10 social needs among 377 people with HIV (PWH) and 27,833 patients without HIV receiving care in the Montefiore Health System. PWH (median age 53) were 55% women, 41% Black, 44% Hispanic. 33% of PWH reported at least one social need vs. 18% among patients without HIV, with healthcare transportation and housing needs significantly higher among PWH in adjusted analyses. PWH reporting transportation needs were 27% less likely to be virologically suppressed (< 200 copies/mL, adjusted prevalence ratio 0.73, 95% CI 0.55–0.96) compared with PWH without transportation needs.
