EPPICC

EPPICC

European Pregnancy and Paediatric HIV Cohort Collaboration

EPPICC is an international network of cohort studies coordinated by PENTA conducting epidemiological research on HIV-infected pregnant women, children and children exposed to HIV in utero, with a programme of work encompassing individual patient data meta-analyses, pharmacovigilance projects and other observational studies.

The research will focus on scientific questions requiring a large sample size of patients which the contributing cohorts cannot answer individually and/or which do not overlap with existing collaborations between participating EPPICC cohorts. EPPICC began as part of EuroCoord, a European Commission FP7 programme funded Network of Excellence established by several of the biggest HIV cohorts and collaborations within Europe: CASCADE, COHERE, EuroSIDA, and PENTA.
