AGEhIV participants are satisfied with the study

Last year, we sent a questionnaire to participants in the AGEhIV Cohort Study to assess their level of satisfaction with the study. We received responses from 333 participants, for which we are very grateful.

The majority of participants reported being generally satisfied with their participation in the study, which is reassuring to note. However, some suggestions for improvement were raised, and we are taking action on them.

One issue concerns reimbursement of travel expenses and/or parking costs. Some participants have reported experiencing difficulties with this. Therefore, we have taken steps to simplify the process for reimbursing travel expenses. You can obtain more information about this from the study nurse or research assistant during your next study visit.

In addition, participants expressed a need for more information about the results of the AGEhIV study. Later this year, we will be organizing a webinar for all participants. During this online webinar, the researchers will present a selection of study results, and there will be ample opportunity for questions from participants. Further information on this will be provided soon.

We hope that these adjustments will contribute to an even better experience for you as a participant in the AGEhIV study. For questions or comments, you can always contact us at Thank you for your years of participation and dedication!
