From: High mortality in HIV-infected children diagnosed in hospital underscores need for faster diagnostic turnaround time in prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) programs

Figure 2

Comparison of survival overall and after ART initiation of HIV-infected infants, by place of diagnosis (hospital vs. Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission [PMTCT] site): Kaplan-Meier Survival Analysis. Infants enrolled in the parent clinical trial were followed prospectively; their mortality is compared in this graphic using Kaplan-Meier curves. Panel A: Overall mortality was significantly higher among the hospital-diagnosed infants than the PMTCT-diagnosed infants. Panel B: Differences in mortality persisted after ART initiation, with a trend towards significance.
