CAPRISA Data Management team recognised for service excellence

13 December 2021

CAPRISA’s Statistics and Data Management department served as the Data Manage-ment Centre (DMC) providing data management and statistical support for the PEPFAR PROMOTE (PROMise Ongoing Treatment Evaluation) study. At the final PROMOTE annual meeting held in Kampala, Uganda on 15th -16th November, the DMC team received an award in recognition of the excellent statistics data management services provided. The presentation was made by study protocol co-chairs Dr Taha Taha and Dr Mary Glenn Fowler.

The PEPFAR  PROMOTE study was a   follow-up study to the IMPAACT PROMISE (Promoting  Maternal and Infant Survival Everywhere) clinical trial.
During the 5-year study, a total of 4619 mothers and children were enrolled in 8 PROMOTE sites across 4 African countries (Uganda, Malawi [2 sites], Zimbabwe [3 sites] and South Africa [2 sites]). A primary aim of the study was to investigate the long-term impact of maternal ART interventions through extended follow-up of HIV-infected women and their children,” explained Dr Nonhlanhla, Head of Statistics & Data Management at CAPRISA.
