Improving Treatment Outcomes

HIV/AIDS treatment programs aim to keep HIV-positive people alive and in care. With the rapid scale-up of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in resource-constrained countries around the world, the number of HIV-positive people enrolled in treatment programs has increased dramatically. Research is needed to evaluate how effective these programs are in reducing HIV-related morbidity and mortality as well as addressing obstacles to treatment access and uptake and to long-term adherence and retention in care. CGHD uses epidemiologic and economic analysis and intervention trials to help identify ways to improve the delivery of care and increase positive outcomes, fostering the long-term success of this unprecedented public health effort.
