NIH Researchers Examining Possibilities For HIV, NCD Care Integration In Resource-Poor Settings

The Lancet: NIH project focuses on integration of HIV and NCD care
“…NCDs are already on the rise in countries most affected by HIV, which means patients with HIV are more likely to develop them as they live longer. Scientists suspect, though, there could also be a link specifically between HIV infection and treatment and the onset of NCDs and are calling for further research. … NIH [researchers] are looking to the existing HIV response system to explore whether services for the additional chronic diseases might be integrated into these already robust, well-financed initiatives…” (Green, 10/15).
