IDCRP Mission

To conduct infectious disease clinical research of importance to the military through a unique, adaptive, and collaborative network, to inform health policy and practice and disseminate findings in peer reviewed literature

Vision: To substantially reduce the impact of infectious diseases in the military population through collaborative clinical research.

IDCRP-000 HIV Natural History Study data key to developing ART/AED therapy


New evidence-based guideline for Antiepileptic drug selection for people with HIV/AIDS has been published in 2 journals, American Academy of Neurology and also Epilepsia. IDCRP-000 HIV Natural History Study data was a key piece for developing this guideline.
