HIV Death Rates Almost Double in NYC Compared
to General Population; Heart Disease is A Leading
Increasing Cause of Death in NYC
  The all-cause death rate (8.9 per 1,000 in 2019) among people with HIV decreased by 60% from 2005 to 2019 but remained higher than the death rate for the overall NYC population (5.5 in 2017).
In 2005, the leading cause of death among people with HIV (PWH) was HIV, representing 59% of all deaths. At the end of 2019, although HIV was still the single leading cause of death among PWH, the majority (73%) of deaths were due to non-HIV-related causes. Since 2005, there have been substantial increases in the proportions of deaths due to cardiovascular diseases (19% of all deaths in 2019) and non-HIV-related cancers (18% of all deaths in 2019) among PWH (Table 18.1).
