The East Africa International epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA-EA) is one of seven regional data centers funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health to provide a rich resource for globally diverse HIV/AIDS data. Indiana University School of Medicine leads the East Africa region in collaboration with the University of California San Francisco (US), Columbia University (US), University of California Riverside (US), Brown University (US), Mt. Sinai (US), Moi University (Kenya), Mbarara University (Uganda), the Tanzanian National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) and the Kisesa Health Centre (Tanzania). Each of the four partner countries has a coordinator and several programs and sites that participate.
East Africa International Epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS
Each region in the IeDEA consortium collaborates with clinical sites to identify and define key variables, harmonize and effectively analyze the data to generate large datasets. These data have been merged across regions to address research questions related to the impact of the global ART rollout on HIV-related clinical outcomes and helped inform global agencies such as WHO and UNAIDS.
IeDEA-EA maintains summary data visualizations to help monitor key outcomes and cohort characteristics within the East Africa region.
Advancing Long-Term HIV Care and Treatment Strategies

Announcing the inaugural trainees for the Fogarty-IeDEA Mentorship Program (FIMP)
In collaboration with the Fogarty International Center (FIC) of the US National Institutes of Health, six IeDEA regions working in low- and middle-income countries have created training opportunities for participants of FIC D43 HIV research and training programs, as well as for IeDEA regional investigators.
The FIMP is designed to help trainees develop skills in study design, data management, analysis, interpretation and dissemination of research involving large HIV clinical databases generated within IeDEA. As part of the FIMP, mentees will have access to IeDEA regional data for analyses that are conducted under the supervision of their respective IeDEA region.
