The International Workshop on HIV and Hepatitis Observational Databases (IWHOD) brings senior and junior HIV and hepatitis observational database researchers together to advance the methodology and analysis of observational data.
Southern Africa is the epicentre of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, with some of the largest antiretroviral therapy (ART) programmes worldwide. By June 2015, UNAIDS estimated 15.8 million people had started ART, 3 million in South Africa alone.
The International epidemiologic Databases to Evaluate AIDS Southern Africa collaboration (IeDEA-SA) undertakes research to improve the long-term delivery of HIV care and ART services. The combined database includes individual-level data on more than 640,000 adults and children on ART in 16 large collaborating cohorts in Malawi, Zambia, South Africa, Mozambique, Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
