Consultancy for design support for Unitaid's Initiative on Advanced HIV Disease

Investigator: Colin Boyle, MPP, MBA
Sponsor: Halteres Associates, LLC

Location(s): United States


The initiative seeks to forge a more effective global response to diagnosing and treating people whose immune systems are so weakened by HIV that they are at risk of infection by other life-threatening diseases. A third of the people who begin HIV treatment get started so late that they already have very weakened immune systems. They are at risk of death even after getting on antiretrovirals, the medicine used to suppress the virus.
