ART and Viral Suppression Rates

for Health Care Providers

Improvements in ART and Viral Suppression Rates in the United States

Using data from the Medical Monitoring Project, this article presents a useful view of ARV treatment in the United States. The analysis demonstrates that U.S. national rates of both ARV prescribing (for persons maintained in care) and viral suppression to <200 copies/mL increased from 2009 to 2013--last at 94% and 80%, respectively, with notable increases over time in nearly all demographic subgroups examined, including women, younger-aged patients, and non-Hispanic blacks. Not surprisingly, though, disparities in viral suppression remain.
