Impact of universal test-and-treat on HIV incidence in Zambia and South Africa: Results of the HPTN 071 (PopART) trial

Date: Thursday 9th May 2019

Time: 12:30 – 13:30

Venue: John Snow A Lecture Theatre, Keppel Street

Speaker: Professor Richard Hayes

PopART was a cluster-randomised trial carried out in 21 communities in Zambia and the Western Cape of South Africa, and the largest HIV prevention trial ever undertaken. Richard Hayes, who led the trial, will present the primary results of the trial, and discuss the implications of the findings in the context of other trials of universal test-and-treat.

Professor Hayes has been working at the School since 1978, and for much of this period he has headed the MRC Tropical Epidemiology Group whose mission is to develop and apply statistical methods in tropical epidemiology and to carry out research on major public health problems of developing countries.
