Several early-stage researchers in the Division of Epidemiology & Biostatistics in the School recently presented their work at the 2018 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI), the leading international scientific meeting devoted to understand, treating and preventing HIV and associated conditions. Now in its 25th year, CROI brings together top basic, translational and clinical researchers from around the world to share the latest studies, important developments and best research methods. Among the researchers from SPH&FM presented their work at CROI this year were:
Nontokozo Langwenya (pictured), who presented her work on retention in care among HIV+ women on antiretroviral therapy in Swaziland, as well as her work on screening for sexually transmitted infections in HIV+ women in Cape Town;
Jasantha Odayar (pictured), who presented an analysis of clinical events early after ART initiation and their ability to predict long-term viral suppression;
Tammy Phillips, who presented work on how HIV-infected women receiving ART are mobile between clinics and across South Africa during the postpartum period.
Well done to Nontokozo, Jasantha, Tammy & colleagues!
