dc.description.abstractA cross-sectional survey was conducted among 112 HIV positive patients who had received antiretroviral therapy for > 3 months to assess the efficacy of treatment [‎viral load < 400 copies/mL]‎. The median age at enrolment was 36 years, 90% of patients were at the AIDS stage and median CD4 rate was 118/mm[‎3]‎. Patients received a combined treatment of 2 NRTI +1 NNRTI [‎51%]‎, 3 NRTI [‎45%]‎ and 2 NRTI+1 PI [‎4%]‎. Virological efficacy was seen in 74% of the patients, irrespective of the prescribed protocol and the initial clinical and immunological profile. Mean improvements measured were 20% on the Karnofsky index [‎KI]‎, 2.1 kg/m[‎2]‎ in body mass index and 82 cells/mm[‎3]‎ in CD4. The prevalence of side effects was 84%. The predictors for treatment success were quality of care and KI > 70%EN
