Abstract

Objective: to analyze the temporal trend of mortality from HIV/AIDS-defining and non-defining diseases in Brazil between 2000 and 2018. Methods: Ecological time series study with data from the Mortality Information System in Brazil and Federation Units. Prais-Winsten regression was used to analyze trends according to general mortality, sex, age group, marital status and race/color. Results: 237,435 deaths were recorded in the period. In the country, defining diseases had higher rates (7.4 to 4.4 deaths/100 thousand inhabitants in the period) than those observed among non-defining diseases (0.4 to 0.8 deaths/100 thousand inhabitants in the period). Overall mortality from defining diseases was decreasing (-6.3% – 95%CI -8.8;-3.8) and for non-defining diseases it was increasing (11.0% – 95%CI 6.5;-15.7). Conclusion: There was a change in the HIV/AIDS mortality profile over the years, with a decrease in deaths from HIV/AIDS-defining diseases.
