IeDEA-Southern Africa (IeDEA-SA) collaboration is a member of the International Epidemiologic Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA), an international research consortium established by the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in 2005 to address unique and evolving research questions in HIV/AIDS that are unanswerable by single cohorts. IeDEA develops and implements methodology to effectively pool the collected data, thus providing a cost effective means of generating large data sets to address high priority research questions.
IeDEA includes seven regional centers for the collection and harmonization of HIV/AIDS data in North America, South America, Asia-Pacific and throughout Africa. IeDEA-SA is led by research teams at the University of Bern (Switzerland) and the University of Cape Town (South Africa) and has participating cohorts located in Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
