This internship abroad is geared towards understanding how the COVID-19 pandemic affected the treatment of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWA) in Brazil and the United States (U.S.). What were the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on PLWA patients in terms of public health outcomes (epidemiological effects), and what strategies were adopted by both countries to mitigate these consequences? Both Brazil and the U.S. were profoundly affected by the pandemic and adopted controversial policies to mitigate the virus, mostly supported by regional governments, given the absence of federal government action. To investigate the health outcomes and policies adopted in both countries, I will conduct a literature review combined with secondary data analysis (epidemiological and documentary research).This internship is part of a research effort (FAPESP 2020/05230-8) that aims to investigate the variables that explain, from a comparative perspective, the different strategies used to counter the coronavirus pandemic. Our publications will provide lessons for present-day and future crisis preparedness.
