About CASCADECASCADE was established in 1997, and is a collaboration between the investigators of 25 cohorts of persons with well-estimated dates of HIV seroconversion (seroconverters).
It is currently a network of epidemiologists, statisticians, virologists and clinicians from lead HIV institutions in 15 European countries, as well as Australia, Canada, and Africa.
Seroconverters are enrolled into the individual cohorts locally and nationally and are typically followed up life-long.
CASCADE’s main aim is to monitor newly infected individuals and those already enrolled in studies, covering the entire duration of HIV infection.
The main premise is that through pooling data we are able to address issues that cannot be reliably addressed from single studies alone.
