Central Africa International epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS (CA-IeDEA) aims to improve health outcomes of individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
Led by investigators from the various universities and organizations, CA-IeDEA utilizes implementation science to identify and address high-priority HIV/AIDS research questions and to identify effective strategies for optimizing HIV care outcomes, including timely diagnosis and care enrollment, care retention, ART initiation and viral suppression.
The CA-IeDEA cohort includes more than 86,000 patients who enrolled in HIV care at participating sites in the five CA-IeDEA countries since the project was launched in 2006, with close to 40,000 patients currently receiving HIV care at 21 active CA-IeDEA sites.
Published in PLOS Medicine, our study examines clinical & programmatic outcomes among #HIV-exposed infants over 25 years in 5 regions of IeDEA. While mortality and HIV diagnoses decreased over time, LTFU was widespread and persistent. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pmed.1004089
Just out in CID, our study shows that #HIV patients initiating ART on the same day as enrollment were at higher risk of being lost-to-follow-up, underscoring the need for tailored counseling and support to patients who accept same-day ART. https://doi.org/10.1093/cid/ciac759
