HIV and Tuberculosis Transmission and Future Trends in the African Population

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Northwestern University (NWU) and the University of Washington (UW) are agreeing to recruit subjects for an NIH-funded study (NIAID K01 AI095060). The purpose of the study is to describe the proportion of HIV-infected African-born persons living in the U.S. who acquired HIV in the U.S., and to better understand HIV testing practices in this population. While King County, Washington has a large African-born population, this population is primarily composed of people from East Africa. In order to increase the diversity of subjects recruited for the study, and to recruit a sufficient number of subjects for the study, the UW is seeking to collaborate with NWU to recruit, enroll, and interview subjects for the study.
