​​DASH Overview

​The NICHD Data and Specimen Hub (DASH) is a centralized resource that allows researchers to share and access de-identified data from studies funded by NICHD.  DASH also serves as a portal for requesting biospecimens from selected DASH studies.

​​DASH Submission

Within the PATC³H consortium, investigators will share data and/or biospecimens through a central repository for the purpose of aggregating data from the various protocols. DASH submission resources are available on the DASH website.

Study Description
Study Population
The purpose of this study was to gather data to describe the demographic, biomedical, psychosocial, and behavioral characteristics of adolescents and young adults living with HIV (AYAHIV) in Nampula, Mozambique, to inform content of the multicomponent CombinADO intervention strategy, and to pilot measures for their social contextual relevance and comprehension by participants. A convenience sample of AYAHIV and a subset of their caregivers were recruited from three government health facilities in 2019 in Nampula, Mozambique. AYAHIV 15-19 years on antiretroviral therapy (ART), including females attending antenatal care, were eligible. A total of 212 AYAHIV (15-19 years) were enrolled. All participants completed a one-time quantitative survey that included questions related to sociodemographic characteristics, educational status, health history, sexual and reproductive health, and ART adherence. Routine HIV care data were extracted from medical charts.
