The National Programme for Fight against (PNLS) of Benin has been providing free antiretroviral drugs since 2003. Two assessments of survival in HIV infected patients receiving antiretroviral treatment (ART) were previously done in 2006 and 2009. The objective of this study was to assess 1-year survival in persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in Benin in 2014, to compare it with previous ones (2006 and 2009) and explore its association with locations of ART providing facilities. This retrospective study included 2176 Benin PLWHA under highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) as per 2006 WHO ART guidelines, selected in 46 ART providing facilities through all regions across the country.
