Abstract

This paper examines sociodemographic and HIV-related factors associated with moving post-HIV diagnosis for non-care- and care-related reasons (versus never moving post-HIV diagnosis). Distinctions are made between those who move for informal care only, formal care only, or informal and formal care. Data come from the nationally representative US HIV Cost and Services Utilization Study (N = 2,864). Overall, 31.8% moved at least once post-HIV diagnosis and 16.3% moved most recently for care. Among those who moved for care, 32.6% moved for informal care only, 26.8% for formal care only, and 40.6% moved for both. Post-HIV diagnosis moves for reasons unrelated to care were less likely among African Americans and older persons, and more likely among those with longer durations positive. Moves for care were less likely among African Americans, older persons, and persons with higher educational attainments, while they were more likely among those with an AIDS diagnosis and longer durations HIV-positive. Among those who moved for care, women and persons with higher incomes were less likely to move for formal or mixed care than informal care only. Given that moving for care may reflect disparities in access to care and unmet needs, additional analyses with more detailed data are warranted.
