Advances in antiretroviral therapies (ART) and patient management have improved survival of people living with HIV (PLWH). However, with exposure to ART and associated side effects and toxicities as well as to the virus itself, PLWH are at an increased risk of several chronic diseases. The Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR) Network of Integrated Clinical Systems (CNICS) research network integrates longitudinal clinical data and treatment management of PLWH and provides research infrastructure to support HIV-associated clinical, social, and behavioral outcomes and comparative effectiveness research using data collected from 8 Centers for AIDS Research clinical sites across United States.
