Cohort Profile: Collaboration of Observational HIV Epidemiological Research Europe (COHERE) in EuroCoord

Abstract : Many questions about the long-term effects of combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) on clinical outcomes in people living with HIV (PLWH) and their impact on health systems remain unanswered. The Collaboration of Observational HIV Epidemiological Research Europe (COHERE) was formed in 2005 to pool and harmonize existing longitudinal data on people living with HIV in Europe, to answer key research questions that could not be addressed adequately by individual cohorts. Key research questions include long-term prognosis, rare outcomes, and variations across patient groups, settings and health systems. COHERE uses the HIV Cohorts Data Exchange Protocol, a standardized and validated method of data structure and transfer, to compile data from over 40 cohorts of PLWH residing in Europe, representing 331 481 individuals, including 2808 children (<13), representing 2 135 896 person-years of follow-up. COHERE compiles data on clinical characteristics, antiretroviral therapy and other medications, HIV seroconversion, opportunistic infections, laboratory results and socio demographic data. External collaborators interested in conducting a project in COHERE should submit a project proposal to the Regional Coordinating Centres in Bordeaux and Copenhagen for review by COHERE’s governing bodies (see for further information).
