Project Description

In the era of universal testing and treatment, a growing proportion of individuals living with HIV are over 50 years of age, putting them at the risk of developing age-associated non-communicable diseases (NCDs). By utilizing the comprehensive, integrated and geo-located data from the African Health Research Institute's population-based HIV cohort in rural KwaZulu-Nata, South Africa, this project seeks to fundamentally understand the spatial distribution and key individual, familial, household, community, and geospatial determinants associated with the overlapping burdens of HIV, TB, and NCDs to inform the development of effective and efficient health care delivery strategies.
