Optimising the health of young people with HIV in their transition from paediatric to adult care
The aim of the CHIPS+ cohort is to evaluate the longer-term health outcomes of young peopla in adult care who have HIV aquired in adulthood
What is this study about?
Due to improvements in HIV treatment and care, increasing numbers of children with HIV are surviving into adulthood and transitioning from paediatric to adult care. However data collection in CHIPS (the Collaborative HIV Paediatric Study) ceases at time of transfer to adult care, and there is a substantial knowledge gap about long term health outcomes of this group in the UK and Ireland, and worldwide; with CHIPS+ we aim to bridge this gap.
