The Adolescent and Young Adult Network of IeDEA (AYANI) is a nested cohort within global IeDEA that recruits and follows adolescents and young adults living with HIV, conducting ongoing, in-depth data collection around the specific biological, mental, social, and cultural factors that may impact their health outcomes. Six IeDEA pediatric regions (East Africa, Central Africa, West Africa, Southern Africa, Asia-Pacific, and the Caribbean/Central and South America [CCASAnet]) currently contribute to the global AYANI cohort.
- To describe care engagement patterns (retention, losses-to-follow up), transition indicators (self-care, socio-demographic data), viral suppression, and mortality among adolescents and young adults living with HIV.
- To examine the correlates of key clinical and socio-demographic factors with retention and viral non-suppression among adolescents and young adults living with HIV.
