1 Apr 2014

The uniquely robust data generated by INDEPTH member centres have helped make the Millennium Development Goal of reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS by 2015 achievable. By identifying how the virus has spread, which population groups are hardest hit, and how the disease can be most successfully tackled, the research conducted by health and demographic surveillance sites across the developing world has had a crucial influence on the policies which have helped slow the spread of AIDS.
