Advancing Long-Term HIV Care and Treatment Strategies
The primary goal of the IeDEA-EA consortium is the provision of answers to questions that clinicians, programs, governments and international organizations consider central to the evolution and sustainability of their long term HIV care and treatment strategies. To achieve the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets, the consortium is exploring a central hypothesis that retention in the HIV care cascade and treatment outcomes are influenced by patient-level developmental and behavioral factors in addition to factors within the ambient health care environment. Over the next five years IeDEA East Africa will continue to utilize its expertise to identify and address barriers to optimal patient and program outcomes.
