Workshop 9: Mortality attributable to HIV

Moshi, Tanzania, July 2012

The focus of this workshop was to estimate the proportion of deaths attributable to HIV using mortality rates by HIV status combined with information from verbal autopsies (VA) and to use that to estimate excess deaths due to untreated HIV infection.  The workshop involved participants from Karonga, Kisesa, Manicaland, Masaka, Rakai, uMkhanyakude, Agincourt and Kisumu.  The results from this workshop were published in a special issue of Global Health Action.
