Working Groups

The NA-ACCORD Working Groups allow space and collaborations for investigators with similar interests to contribute to the NA-ACCORD's scientific agenda within each Working Group domaine. All investigators are welcome to join the Working Groups.

Comparative Effectiveness:  Focuses on relative effectiveness of initial ART regimens in relation to outcomes (AIDS, non-AIDS comorbidities, death), other therapies, as well as natural and treated history.

Comorbidities Working Groups: – Collectively, these groups work to evaluate the relative prognostic impact of classical and HIV-related risk factors on comorbidity incidence, and determine the clinical consequences of comorbidities on HIV disease progression and survival.

            Aging and Multimorbidity        Cardiovascular           Kidney

            Liver                   Malignancy              TB

Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders: The purpose and importance of the mental health and substance use (MSUD) working group is to guide and motivate NA-ACCORD research projects focused on mental health and substance use disorders. Given the intersecting determinants and pathologies of mental health and substance use disorders, this MSUD working group was established to ensure the strength of the NA-ACCORD’s mental health and substance use research efforts, the efficiency of scientific products in this area of HIV research, and define and achieve a scientific agenda specific to mental helath and substance use disorders.

Quality of Care: Focuses on monitoring the clinical epidemiology of HIV‐infected adults in care in the US and Canada, including measuring progress towards national goals and informing key decision makers.
