This study aimed to evaluate the inpatient management of HIV-MI comorbidity in a psychiatric unit.

Records of patients admitted to the unit with a diagnosis of HIV-MI comorbidity from June 2011 to June 2012 were retrieved and analysed.

However challenges were observed in HIV management.Generally, the coordination of care between psychiatrists and other disciplines was insufficient.

An integrated management approach need to be implemented
