People living with HIV (PLWH) experience high rates of mood disorders (major depression and bipolar affective disorder) which in the general population have been associated with noncommunicable disease (NCD) risk. We examined whether prevalent mood disorders are associated with incident NCDs and multimorbidity (accumulation of ≥2 NCDs) in PLWH.
