Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS)

Funded by the National Institutes of Health for over 20 years, the multicenter Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS) is the largest and longest-running study to investigate the impact of HIV on women in the United States. Findings from the WIHS have helped define how best to treat HIV seropositive (+) women in the United States and globally. The Brooklyn WIHS site enrolled over 650 participants and continues to follow 250 HIV+ women and 100 HIV negative women. This research study seeks to learn about the gynecologic manifestations and progression of HIV disease in women in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy. The participants receive ongoing gynecologic care in addition to education and support services. Dr. Howard Minkoff and Dr. Deborah Gustafson are the co-Principal Investigators of the WIHS study at the SUNY Downstate WIHS site.
