Previous studies have shown that people with HIV are at an increased risk of non-communicable diseases, this systematic review and meta-analysis collates data from 188 studies done in 21 sub-Saharan Africa countries and shows that people with HIV have an increased incidence of multiple NCDs, including hypertension, diabetes, and cervical cancer. Although more research is needed, this results highlight the need for improved treatment and prentative approaches to minimise the risk of people with HIV also developing non-comminicable diseases. Good health and wellbeing should not solely be focused on HIV managment; this study shows the growing risk of other diseases that have to be mitigated.
This Article supports SDG 3 by showing, through a modelling analysis, that community tenofovir, lamivudine, and dolutegravir (TLD) is likely to reduce HIV incidence and be cost-effective, thus leading to population health benefits.
This Article supports SDG 3 by showing that interventions and strategies to reduce mortality from HIV-related CNS infection in public hospitals within routine care services can substantially reduce all-cause 2-week mortality among people living with HIV presenting to public hospitals with suspected HIV-related CNS infection.
