IeDEA Network Contributes Data Analyses to WHO for HIV Progress Report

In collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Epidemiological Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA) research consortium provided essential data analyses to support the findings of the 2015 progress report entitled, “Global health sector response to HIV, 2000-2015: focus on innovations in Africa.”

This report provides insight to the progress and impact of the global public health response to HIV for the past fifteen years. IeDEA regions analyzed existing data from regional cohorts of people living with HIV at various phases in the continuum of care from diagnosis to viral suppression including retention in care and delays in diagnosis. In addition, the Southern Africa Region of IeDEA provided data on estimates of life expectancy of adults on antiretroviral treatment for cohorts in Southern Africa.

The report was released at the International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA), and is available on the WHO website:
