Background: The incidence of Kaposi Sarcoma (KS) is high in sub-Saharan Africa. Data on KS among HIV-infected patients receiving and not yet receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART) are, however, scarce in Africa. Within the framework of a large multi-cohort project, the International epidemiologic Database to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA), we estimate the incidence and risk factors for the development of KS in HIV-infected patients in Southern Africa.
