The goal of this research is to determine the prevalence of subclinical atherosclerosis and to assess the underlying risk factors in HIV-infected individuals in two HIV treatment centres in Jos. I have spent a good part of the six years as a resident doctor and now as a consultant chemical pathologists and metabolic physician in managing both metabolic and laboratory aspects of HIV patients’ care. During this time, I haveincreasingly noticed the presence of one or more traditional risk factors for CVDs in HIV patients. However, it is not clear if the presence of these risk factors actually translate to vascular disease and subsequently CVDs. I have also noticed gaps in risk assessment for CVDs among HIV-patients evidence by lack of national policy for routine CVDs risk assessment. This is study is designed to provide data to fill the knowledge gap in our understanding of risk assessment for CVDs in Nigerian PLWH. I am confident that my experience in metabolic medicine and HIV treatment and care research has equipped me with the necessary expertise and motivation to successfully execute this research project.
