The statisticians involved in EuroCoord met in London on 5th December 2014 for their annual meeting to discuss statistical methodology.
The second edition of the EuroCoord Digest has been released just in time for World AIDS day.
AIDS ribbonIn this newsletter EuroCoord takes the opportunity to show support for World AIDS Day which takes place Tuesday 1st December 2015.
This newsletter highlights a selection of some of EuroCoord’s recently published studies in the scientific literature looking at HIV testing and pregnancy outcomes in Ukraine, liver-related deaths and the effect of abacavir on HCV treatment response in HIV/HCV co-infected people, mortality in migrants living with HIV in Western Europe, and finally how health care services are organised and delivered in Europe for HIV/TB co-infected people.
We also bring you news of the joint EuroCoord-EATG Community Outreach Workshop which took place the 8-9th November in Brussels and was attended by the European Community Advisory Board.
This large, integrated network exploits the scientific strengths of each collaboration to ensure that the best, most competitive HIV research is performed.
The main advantage of this collaborative method of working is the formation of a common virtual database, which currently has access to data from over 300,000 HIV positive people from many different settings in Europe and beyond.
EuroCoord is made up of 25 beneficiaries chosen from 16 countries to ensure representativeness across Europe. The nature of the collaboration means that apart from these partners, there is also an associated network of numerous affiliated sites – more than 100 collaborating centres, or third parties.
EuroCoord is funded for a period of 5 years from 2011 as part of the European Commission’s Framework Programme 7.
