Indiana University, with partners at the University of California San Francisco, Columbia University, New York University, Moi University in Kenya and Mbarara University in Uganda and support from the World Health Organization and various agencies and private foundations, have established a number of extensive HIV/AIDS treatment and research networks in the East African nations of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. This initiative has created a regional data center for East Africa as part of the IeDEA Consortium. The Center not only merges and shares data among current and future partners, but also offers unparalleled research capacity to identify and address questions that are amendable to combined regional database analysis.

Mission & Vision Statement
The primary goal of this consortium is the provision of answers to questions that clinicians, programs, governments and international organizations consider central to the evolution and sustainability of their long term HIV care and treatment strategies. The current global focus is on achieving the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets. As such, our central hypothesis, is that retention in the HIV care cascade, and treatment outcomes, are influenced by patient-level developmental and behavioral factors in addition to factors within the ambient healthcare environment. Over the next five years we will continue to utilize our expertise to identify and address barriers to optimal patient and program outcomes.
