INROADS: Innovations Research on HIV/AIDS

Project Description

In 2012, CGHD’s partner organization in South Africa, the Health Economics and Epidemiology Research Office (HE2RO), received a new five-year cooperative agreement from USAID/South Africa to conduct research and evaluation in support of South Africa’s National Strategic Plan for HIV, TB, and STIs.  The new program, called INROADS (Innovations Research on HIV/AIDS), will support CGHD’s collaboration with HE2RO through 2017.

Under INROADS, CGHD is providing technical assistance to HE2RO to implement research and evaluation in five major areas:

  • HIV care and treatment:  linkages, retention, and outcomes
  • TB/HIV:  case-finding, diagnosis, and treatment
  • Service delivery models and treatment guidelines
  • Cost and budget modeling
  • Sexual and reproductive health:  women, adolescents, and men

Activities under this project include:

CGHD faculty are also helping to build South Africa’s capacity for epidemiological and economic analysis through the delivery of short courses and mentorship of HE2RO researchers.
