Project Description

Hypertension is a major driver of cardiovascular disease (CVD) among persons living with HIV (PLWH) and earlier treatment of hypertension among PLWH could reduce CVD events and death. We propose a pilot study to explore the feasibility, benefits and risk of initiating antihypertensive treatment among PLWH with prehypertension in Haiti as a first step to a larger multicenter trial powered for incident CVD events.
