Results: In 2002 and 2003 lost 4,932 and 4747 DALYs by AIDS in the assure population with AVISA rate of 7.03 and 6.36 by 10,000 assure people respectively. The mayor relative weigh of DALYs was by the life lost component more than disability, male sex gave the 70% and 60% percent of DALYs estimated and more affected age was from 15 to 44 years old. According the proceeding, the Lima-Oriente Macro Region was where lost 70% percent of DALYs assure population national level. Conclusions: The application of the burden of disease method, permitted characterize to AIDS to integrated mortality, mobility and disability components.
