This study is designed to relate the Cox Proportional Hazard model to evaluate the determinant factors of survival time, predict the clinical progression of HIV/AIDs ailment by means of secondary data obtained from the Antiretroviral Rehabilitation Unit of Central Hospital, Agbor, Delta State, Nigeria.
