In 2015 the World Health Organization (WHO) eliminated CD4 restrictions for initiating antiretroviral therapy (ART) for people living with HIV (PLHIV) in developing countries. However, the success of therapy is also dependent upon additional health and demographic characteristics of HIV patients at the time they enroll in care. This study investigated pre-ART (time between enrollment and initiation of ART) factors associated with transition to therapy. Data was compiled from a review of 195,011 records of ART-naïve adults enrolled in HIV care and treatment facilities supported by AIDSRelief in Kenya and Tanzania. The outcome variable was transition out of pre-ART care by one of 4 mutually exclusive modes: started ART, died before ART initiation, lost to follow-up (LTFU), and transferred to another facility. The following baseline covariates were analyzed for their relevance to the mode of transition: sex, age at enrollment, CD4 count at enrollment, presence of tuberculosis at enrollment, presence of cryptococcal disease at enrollment, presence of other active opportunistic infections, and year of enrollment in care. The dataset includes demographic data and clinical measures.
