Viral Load & Early Infant Diagnosis Resources

By Lauren Alexanderson | 13 Apr, 2017

Members of this group may be interested in resources from AIDSFree's Viral Load and Early Infant Diagnosis Database. For example, on March 22, we held a webinar with Dianna Edgil and Jason Williams of USAID and Shirley Lecher and Ritu Pati of CDC. The speakers highlighted a network approach to viral load scale-up, introduced a viral load scale-up scorecard, and discussed the Project ECHO tool. The webinar also introduced the AIDSFree HIV Viral Load (VL) and Early Infant Diagnosis (EID) Knowledge Base, a collection of resources and tools to help you find what you need to scale up VL monitoring and EID.

Thank you Lauren, for your information, As in my country now we just launching the new recommendation for do at birth DBS-EID testing and start ARV treatment as soon as for EID positive baby and stop it if the second EID testing negative. How about real practise from other country for do the EID at birth?

Munyaradzi. I am trying to understand your query. are you trying to study if alcohol use impacts adherence to ARVs or not. Ido not think you want to study impact of alcohol use on viral suppression. you can inbox me your study protocol on tcmahwire@gmail,com the i can assist in designing a proper research protocol.
