The Impact of Missed Health Care Visits on HIV Outcomes and Mortality

MAR-14-12  At the 19th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) [external disclaimer] last week, Dr. Ron Valdiserri, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Health for Infectious Diseases, spoke with Dr. Michael Horberg, Director of HIV/AIDS for Kaiser Permanente and a member of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA). They discussed the paper Dr. Horberg presented at CROI on the impact of missed office visits on HIV outcomes and mortality. This paper offers important insight into our efforts to address improvements in the continuum of HIV care.
