The economic burden of comorbidities among people living with HIV
in Germany; A cohort analysis using health insurance claims data

  I just reported the ATHENA presentation at Glasgow where they reported comorbidities increase death rate plus that increasing numbers of comorbidities increase death rates and along with increased aging these affects worsen. So in reviewing this data where they attach a cost for each coorbiditym I urge you to consider the patient with several of these comorbidities simultaneously or each occurring over several years - I=imagine the costs for healthcare for this person along with the increased death rates. In ATHENA those with 3 or worse with 4 comorbidities had the worst death rates.. Jules
