Scopes

In US children and adolescents with perinatal HIV who were born internationally, this initiative will support studies including but limited to those :

  • Evaluating the natural history and diagnosis of HIV infection and its consequences (e.g. non-clade B HIV disease course, co-transmitted infections, opportunistic infections, etc)
  • Addressing the diagnostic implications for current HIV screening methodologies to identify undiagnosed HIV infection, stop HIV disease progression and reduce onward transmission including in families (e.g. siblings with perinatal HIV born in the US)
  • Exploring the ART treatment implications for the management of HIV infection (e.g. HIV subtypes, drug resistance mutations)
  • Evaluating culturally appropriate strategies to address disclosure of HIV infection, and readiness for care and improve access/linkage to and retention in care
  • Exploring how life events experienced and structural factors (family conflict, distrust of medical establishment, fears of legal authorities and policies on immigrant status, stigma, etc) impact health seeking behaviors like adherence to care and medications, and that test interventions to ameliorate barriers
  • Improving their understanding of how to effectively address stress and trauma (adjustment to school, new environment, culture shock, gender identity issues, etc)
  • Evaluating wrap-around and other support services to sustain engagement in care and adherence to medications with the goal of viral suppression for children experiencing challenges
  • Evaluating how to adopt appropriate primary care management recommendations (e.g. vaccination, TB screening and prevention) and the impacts of late HIV diagnosis on neurocognitive, learning, and behavioral development
