Characteristics Associated with Pre-Frailty
in Older People Living with HIV (47% Pre-Frailty)

The average age of ADHOC participants was 59 years. Eighty-six percent were male, 60% were white, and 71% were gay or lesbian (Table 1). Forty-seven percent were classified with pre-frailty, 26% with frailty, and 27% with no frailty. In the bivariate analyses, pre-frailty was positively associated with depression, low cognitive function, multiple comorbidities, low income, low social support and unemployment (Table 2). In the multiple logistic regression analysis, pre-frailty was associated with having low cognitive function (OR 8.56, 95% CI: 3.24 -22.63), 4 or more comorbid conditions (OR 4.00, 95% CI: 2.23 -7.06), and an income less than $50,000 (OR 2.70, 95% CI: 1.56 -4.68) (Table 3).
