dc.description.abstractThis study describes the demographics and treatment status of HIV-infected adults accessing ambulatory care in the Republic of Ireland and estimates diagnosed HIV prevalence rates. 3254 HIV-infected adults attended 1 of the 6 specialist HIV centres in the 12-month period 1 st July 2009 to 30 th June 2010. 2023/3254 (62%) were male, 1761/3133 (56%) Irish and 1048/3133 (34%) African. 1924/3098 (62%) resided in the Dublin area. The mean age was 39.8 years (SD 9.3); probable route of acquisition was available for 2898/3254 (89%); heterosexual acquisition accounted for 1442 (50%), MSM 777 (27%) and IDU 598 (21%). 2574/3202 (80%) were on highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART).Of these 87% had HIV-RNA levels < 50cpm and 94% < 500cpm. The HIV diagnosed prevalence rate is estimated at 1.09/1000 nationally and at 2.25/1000 in the Dublin area for 15-59 year olds
