The epidemiology of adolescents living with perinatally acquired HIV: A cross-region global cohort analysisSlogrove, AL; Schomaker, M; Davies, MA; Williams, P; Balkan, S; Ben-Farhat, J; Calles, N; Chokephaibulkit, K; Duff, C; Eboua, TF; et al. (Public Library of Science, 2018-03-01)Globally, the population of adolescents living with perinatally acquired HIV (APHs) continues to expand. In this study, we pooled data from observational pediatric HIV cohorts and cohort networks, allowing comparisons of adolescents with perinatally acquired HIV in "real-life" settings across multiple regions. We describe the geographic and temporal characteristics and mortality outcomes of APHs across multiple regions, including South America and the Caribbean, North America, Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, and South and Southeast Asia.

Tuberculosis in antiretroviral treatment programs in lower income countries: availability and use of diagnostics and screening.Fenner, L; Ballif, M; Graber, C; Nhandu, V; Dusingize, J C; Cortes, C P; Carriquiry, G; Anastos, K; Garone, D; Jong, E; et al. (PLoS, 2013-10-17)In resource-constrained settings, tuberculosis (TB) is a common opportunistic infection and cause of death in HIV-infected persons. TB may be present at the start of antiretroviral therapy (ART), but it is often under-diagnosed. We describe approaches to TB diagnosis and screening of TB in ART programs in low- and middle-income countries.
