Abstract

AB/IDU, AB/non-IDUs, and non-AB/IDUs had significantly poorer physical HRQL than non-AB/non-IDUs. These differences appear to be partially explained by poorer clinical status, especially for AB/IDUs, which suggests that observed inequalities in physical HRQL may be diminished by improving patients' clinical status; for example, through improved adherence to HAART.
