Cardiometabolic disease risk and HIV status in rural South Africa: establishing a baseline
BACKGROUND: To inform health care and training, resource and research priorities, it is essential to establish how non-communicable disease risk factors vary by HIV-status in high HIV burden areas; and whether long-term anti-retroviral therapy (ART) plays a modifying role.
