Global HIV/AIDS survey by IAPAC reveals critical gap in patient-physician conversations
Date:7/20/2010

VIENNA, AUSTRIA, 20 July 2010 Results from the landmark AIDS Treatment for Life International Survey (ATLIS 2010), a multi-country survey of more than 2,000 people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), revealed a significant gap in patient-physician dialogue about critical health-related conditions that may negatively impact patients' overall long-term health, quality of life, and treatment outcomes. The data suggested that while patients believe they are engaging in meaningful conversations with their healthcare providers (HCPs), these discussions often do not focus on individual patient needs, including chronic illnesses, treatment side effects, or co-morbid conditions, such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), which is the leading cause of death worldwide.1 These and other ATLIS 2010 findings were presented today by the International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care (IAPAC) at the XVIII International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2010) in Vienna, Austria.

While the ATLIS 2010 findings showed a high degree of patient satisfaction with HCPs globally (97 percent), and the majority of patients believe they are being treated according to their individual needs (84 percent), some respondents claim to have never engaged in important discussions related to their long-term wellness, such as health history, present medical conditions, treatment side effects, new treatment options, or how all of these factors may impact their overall health and treatment outcomes. Findings further indicate the need for more in-depth discussions to reinforce the importance of adherence to HIV medicines and avoidance of HIV drug resistance.

"IAPAC is issuing a global call-to-action to encourage more individualised patient-physician dialogue to ensure that patients' personal needs, past health history, and current medical status are considered, as well as quality of life issues," said Jos M. Zuniga, PhD, president/CEO, IAPAC, and ATLIS 2010 Task Force member. "Exp
