Enrollment of study participants and biospecimen collection is ongoing. Deposit of H3Africa biospecimen collections will begin in 2016. A description of the collections that includes details about available samples will be maintained in an online public access catalogue as the information becomes available. At this time, general information about NIH-funded Collaborative Centers and research projects that are contributing biospecimens is at http://h3africa.org/consortium/projects.
When the biospecimen collections become available, applications to use them will be reviewed by the Data and Biospecimen Access Committee (DBAC). The DBAC Guidelines contain policies and procedures for data and biospecimen sharing.
