Description

This dataset outlines causes of death (CoD) for 259 HIV-positive adults enrolled in the TB Fast Track and XPHACTOR studies, two large studies investigating HIV-associated tuberculosis (TB) in South Africa. It contains basic decedent demographics; CoD assigned by physicians with access to clinical data, including, in some, data from minimally-invasive autopsy (MIA); and CoD assigned by interpretation of verbal autopsy (VA) data, by physicians, InterVA-4 software, and SmartVA-Analyze software.
