OBJECTIVE The evaluation of HIV treatment programs is generally based on an estimation of survival among patients receiving antiretroviral treatment (ART). In large HIV programs, loss to follow-up (LFU) rates remain high despite active patient tracing, which is likely to bias survival estimates and survival regression analyses. METHODS We compared uncorrected survival estimates derived from routine program data with estimates obtained by applying six correction methods that use updated… CONTINUE READING
