South Africa - A cohort of HIV-infected patients in South Africa

We are currently enrolling newly diagnosed HIV-infected patients into a cluster randomized trial at 14 HIV clinics in Matlosana and Potchefstroom in the North West Province of South Africa. To date, we have enrolled 1400 patients and plan for another 1000 over the next 12 months. This study, and several other cohort studies in the area, create many opportunities for student-led projects. We are currently conducting projects on viral load as an indicator of antiretroviral adherence, preventive therapy for TB, and risk factors for chronic lung disease.
