    Author(s): Katsidzira A and Gonah L*

    Background: The study sought to determine the treatment outcomes of patients on first line ART with low level viremia (51-1000 copies/mL) as well as the risk factors for subsequent treatment failure at Harare Central Hospital in Zimbabwe. Method: A cohort of 300 medical records of patients who were on first line ART between 01 January 2013 and 31 December 2016, and who had low level viremia at least 6 months post ART initiation were followed up to determine the treatment outcome. Results: While only a single individual died, 11% had persistent low-level viremia, 74% suppressed, 8% failed treatment, and 6% had been transferred out and thus their treatment outcome could not be established. Only 17% recorded new opportunistic infection. The hazard of treatment failure were 3.37 times higher in subjects with 0-200 CD4 when.. Read More»
