The association between antimicrobial resistance and HIV infection: a systematic review and meta-analysis
People living with HIV (PLWH) are at increased risk of infections with resistant organisms due to more frequent healthcare utilization. Our objective was to investigate the association between HIV and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
This review shows an increased risk of AMR in PLWH across a range of bacterial pathogens and multiple drug classes. The lack of laboratory capacity for identifying AMR, and limited access to alternative treatment options in countries with the highest burden of HIV, highlight the need for more research on AMR in PLWH. Overall, the quality of studies was moderate or low, which may impact the findings of this review.
