"Barriers to Myocardial Infarction Care Among Persons Living with HIV in Tanzania”
Evidence suggests that in sub-Saharan Africa myocardial infarction (MI) is common and associated with high mortality, but locally-appropriate interventions to improve MI care are lacking, particularly among vulnerable populations such as persons living with HIV (PLWH). This study will quantify the burden of HIV among MI patients and identify barriers to care among this population.
