East Africa International Epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS

The East Africa epidemiology International 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), University of Toronto (Canada), Moi University (Kenya), Mbarara University (Uganda), the Tanzanian National AIDS Control Program and the Kisesa Health Centre (Tanzania). Each of the four partner countries has a coordinator and several programs and sites that participate.

IeDEA partners can access the Member Portal for information and resources.


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.

Advancing Long-Term HIV Care and Treatment Strategies

The primary goal of the IeDEA-EA consortium is the provision of answers to questions that clinicians, programs, governments and international organizations consider central to the evolution and sustainability of their long term HIV care and treatment strategies. To achieve the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets, the consortium is exploring a central hypothesis that retention in the HIV care cascade and treatment outcomes are influenced by patient-level developmental and behavioral factors in addition to factors within the ambient health care environment. Over the next five years IeDEA East Africa will continue to utilize its expertise to identify and address barriers to optimal patient and program outcomes.
