Cardiovascular Risk Estimation is Sub-optimal Across Two HIV Cohort
  "Cardiovascular risk prediction functions developed for the general population are not uniformly transportable to PLWH, and their performance further differs among PLWH by sex and health care system where care is received. The results underscore the need for both HIV-specific and sex-specific functions to ensure equity in the delivery of preventative care."
