IPEC/FIOCRUZ AIDS Clinic cohort

IPEC/FIOCRUZ AIDS Clinic cohort

Initiatives -
The IPEC/FIOCRUZ AIDS Clinic has provided care to HIV-infected patients in Rio de Janeiro since 1986. An observational, longitudinal, clinical database has been maintained on patients receiving primary HIV care in the clinic since 1998. The data collection process was patterned after the process established at the Johns Hopkins AIDS Service. Data are updated regularly using clinic and inpatient clinical documentation, laboratory testing results, and pharmacy records. Prescription of antiretroviral therapy at IPEC–FIOCRUZ (drug, dates of use, and dose) is documented by the medical provider and support staff in the clinical records. Trained abstractors record all this information onto standardized forms for processing. *Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.*
