CURE HIV-COVID Reporting Database
Coronavirus Under Research Exclusion
Coronavirus Under Research Exclusion (CURE HIV-COVID) is an adult database to monitor and report on outcomes of COVID-19 occurring in HIV patients. We encourage HIV clinicians in the United States to report ALL cases of COVID-19 in their HIV patients, regardless of severity (including asymptomatic patients detected through public health screening). Reporting a case to this CURE HIV-COVID database should take approximately 5 minutes. Please report only confirmed COVID-19 cases, and report after a minimum of 7 days and sufficient time has passed to observe the disease course through resolution of acute illness or death.

With the collaboration of our entire HIV community, we will rapidly be able to define the impact of COVID-19 on patients with HIV and how factors such as age, CD4 count, comorbidities, and treatments impact COVID outcomes.
This is an United States effort—we are counting on robust participation and collaboration. We are working on expanding to other regions internationally
We will provide the HIV community with regularly updated summary information about reported cases, including numbers of cases by country, number of cases by treatment, etc. so the entire HIV community has access to these data.
The database contains only de-identified data, in accordance with HIPAA Safe Harbor De-Identification standards.
The Integreview and University of Maryland-Baltimore IRBs have determined that storage and analysis of de-identified data does not constitute human subjects research as defined under federal regulations [45 CFR 46.102 and 21 CFR 56.102] and does not require IRB approval.
We hope you will actively contribute to this voluntary reporting system. Through broad scale participation and collaboration, we will be able to answer these very pressing questions for our HIV patients and their caregivers.
