Each region collaborates with clinical sites to identify and define key variables, harmonize and effectively analyze the data to generate large datasets. These data can be merged across regions to address research questions related to the impact of the global ART rollout on HIV-related clinical outcomes.
Known as the “African CROI” the INTEREST Conference brings together scientists involved in HIV treatment, pathogenesis, and prevention research in Africa.
INTEREST 2020 will take place in Windhoek, Namibia, from 1-4 December 2020.
Who We Are
IeDEA is an international research consortium established in 2006 by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to provide a rich resource for globally diverse HIV/AIDS data.
The IeDEA Cohort Consortium collaborates to collect and define key variables, harmonize data, and implement methodology to effectively pool data as a cost-effective means of generating large data sets to address the high priority research questions and streamline HIV/AIDS research.
IeDEA collects HIV/AIDS data from seven international regional data centers, including four in Africa, and one each in the Asia-Pacific region, the Central/South America/Caribbean region, and North America. These regional data centers consolidate, curate and analyze data on care and treatment of HIV to evaluate the outcomes of people living with HIV/AIDS.
