Resumen

JUAREZ-FIGUEROA, Luis Alfredo et al. Evaluation of HIV, STI and CD4 results among voluntary attendees at the HIV/AIDS program of Mexico City. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2017, vol.59, n.2, pp.147-153. ISSN 0036-3634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21149/8072.

Objective:

To describe results of HIV, sexually transmitted diseases (STI) and CD4 counts at the HIV-specialized Condesa Clinic (CC) in Mexico City.

Materials and methods:

Individuals who requested voluntary counseling and testing at CC were studied. We identified antibodies against HIV, syphilis, hepatitis C, and hepatitis B HBsAg. CD4 cell counts and viral load of HIV positive individuals were also obtained. Late HIV infection diagnosis was established if CD4 counts were lower than 200 cells/μL.

Results:

Global seroprevalence of HIV, syphilis, HBsAg, and anti HCV markers was of 20.1, 6, 1 and 1, respectively. Men displayed higher seroprevalence of infection markers than women. Among men, HIV infection was related to age and with all STI markers. Late HIV diagnosis was 31.8%. The risk of late HIV diagnosis was higher among women and it increased as age increased.

Conclusions:

Differences between genders regarding HIV and STIs prevalence as well as risk factors for HIV infection and late HIV diagnosis were observed.
