Despite the efforts made by the Malian government with technical and financial partners in the fight against HIV and AIDS, there are no data on the evolution of people with HIV in medical consultation in antiretroviral treatment sites. The objective of this work is to fill this gap by generating factual data describing the evolution of the number of people with HIV in medical consultation in Mali. To achieve this goal, we conducted a cross-sectional study using data from the Coordination Unit of the Sectoral Committee for AIDS Control of the Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene. Sampling was comprehensive including all people living with HIV. The data collected concerned those of the years 1999 to 2014 by the ESOPE software and analyzed with Stata version 12. A Total of 39,619 people were enrolled in the study. And 26,212 people living with HIV in the 17 ESOPE sites of Mali were female. Patients aged 25-34 and 35-44 years were strongly represented in consultation in the years 2007 and 2011, and those aged 15-24 were the least frequent. HIV1 was the most dominant with 97%. The majority of patients presented for initial consultation were clinical stages 2 and 3 in all years. Cases of lost sites seen in the more common in hospitals are 62.79% at the Hospital of Mopti and 57% at the University Hospital of Point G. The number of cases of people living with HIV in medical consultation has progressively augmented from 1999-2007. Then it dropped from 2008-2010. After this number has increased by 2011, it dropped again in 2012-2014. This study made it possible to note the evolution of the patients in medical consultation in ESOPE antiretroviral treatment sites according to the years and events (safe, subsidized by activities by the global fund). The activities of sensitization and communications, case research should be strengthened by involving the community.
