Background: No evaluation has been undertaken to assess benefits of the national antiretroviral therapy program and the distribution of the benefits to various Thai social classes resulting from the roll out the programme in 2001. This study aims to test the hypothesis that there was no association between socioeconomic status of the HIV-infected patients and their HFV-related mortality. The objectives of this study include identification of benefit of the treatment in relation to survival, health-related quality of life, immunological improvement and duration on the first-line regimen as well as the exploration of factors that might influence those outcomes.
