For this issue of the Epidemiologic Surveillance Bulletin, we summarize the prior year’s research on populations living with HIV (PLWH) in Haiti for World AIDS Day 2020.
We retrieved 50 articles from PubMed (pubmed.gov) for articles written in English using the search term [Haiti* AND (HIV OR "human immunodeficiency virus" OR AIDS)] from December 2019 to November 19, 2020 (approximately 1 year). We included studies that of cohorts of people living with HIV in Haiti, patients enrolled from Haiti in multi-country clinical studies and studies involving populations at substantial risk of HIV in Haiti. We excluded studies of Haitian populations in other countries, study protocols, perspectives, and opinion articles. The final review contains summaries of 28 studies. We grouped into relevant themes when possible and summarized each paper.
