UK-South Africa CONNECT study

A Newton Fund collaboration with scientists from South Africa’s University of Cape Town and the University of Liverpool in the UK are working together to fill this knowledge gap. Researchers examined patients at the Gugulethu Community Health Centre in Cape Town to assess the impact of HIV and ARV drugs on their cognitive function and mental health.
