HPTN 071 (PopART) : a cluster-randomized trial of the population impact of an HIV combination prevention intervention including universal testing and treatment : mathematical model
Background: The HPTN 052 trial confirmed that antiretroviral therapy (ART) can nearly eliminate HIV transmission from successfully treated HIV-infected individuals within couples. Here, we present the mathematical modeling ...
Patient diagnostic rate as indicator of tuberculosis case detection, South Africa
(Centers for Disease Control and PreventionPublisher's version, 2016)
ENGLISH SUMMARY : To address the uncertainty of the indirectly measured tuberculosis case detection rate, we used survey data stratified by HIV status to calculate the patient diagnostic rate, a directly measurable indicator, ...
HPTN 071 (PopART) : rationale and design of a cluster-randomised trial of the population impact of an HIV combination prevention intervention including universal testing and treatment - a study protocol for a cluster randomised trial
(BioMed Central, 2014-02)
Abstract Background Effective interventions to reduce HIV incidence in sub-Saharan Africa are urgently needed. Mathematical modelling and the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) 052 trial ...
Understanding low sensitivity of community-based HIV rapid testing : experiences from the HPTN 071 (PopART) trial in Zambia and South Africa
(Wiley Open Access, 2017-08-27)
Introduction: Population-wide HIV testing services (HTS) must be delivered in order to achieve universal antiretroviral treatment (ART) coverage. To accurately deliver HTS at such scale, non-facility-based HIV point-of-care ...
