To evaluate timing of HAART initiation after an OI in “real life” settings in Latin America we used a cohort of patients in the Caribbean, Central and South America network for HIV Epidemiology (CCASAnet) >18 years of age at enrolment, from 2001- 2012 who had an OI before HAART initiation were included. Patients were divided in an early HAART (EH) group (those initiating within 4 weeks of an OI) and a delayed HAART (DH) group (those initiating more than 4 weeks after an OI). All patients with an AIDS-defining OI were included. In patients with more than one OI the first event reported was considered. Calendar trends in the proportion of patients in the EH group (before and after 2009) were estimated by site and for the whole cohort.
