University of Colorado, Denver (COPD) - Recruitment Strategies

All subjects will be recruited from the metropolitan Denver area and surrounding regions. People with and without HIV-1 infection will be considered for participation in the study. Potential volunteers will be recruited through Institutional Review Board approved advertising. All HIV-1 infected persons who meet the defined eligibility criteria will be actively recruited into the study. The demographics of the subjects will reflect closely the demographics of the AIDS epidemic among women in Colorado.
