Results from the SEARCH trial were presented today at the 2018 AIDS conference held in Amsterdam. SEARCH offers a new community-based model to treat HIV and other health conditions in rural East Africa and led to 20 percent fewer HIV deaths, reduced the incidence of HIV and tuberculosis (TB), and improved control of hypertension and diabetes. The trial includes more than 350,000 adults and children in rural Kenya and Uganda to evaluate the effect of a “test-and-treat” strategy on HIV, community health, and economic outcomes.SEARCH achieved testing 90% of the trial population.
