Brief description

ACM was a multi-university collaborative project involving a cohort study design with more than 4,000 patients selected from seven university based clinics. The project looks at the effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy (ART) among people living with HIV/AIDS in Ethiopia. It was undertaken with an agreement signed between EPHI and MERQ. A collaborative analysis of the available data was done, resulting in the publication of different papers in peer reviewed journals.
