Treatment Adherence and Retention in Care


In the realm of Treatment Adherence and Retention in Care, CHIP’s work includes a novel software program to increase HIV-positive patients’ adherence to antiretroviral medications and a theory-based, cell phone-delivered HIV medication adherence counseling intervention currently being developed and tested. New research in this area during FY13 includes development of an intervention to promote retention in care and medication adherence during the first year of HIV treatment and the development of a seven-to-ten minute video clip to promote consistent use of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) among current and potential PrEP users.

CHIP research on medication adherence targets a variety of at-risk populations including men who have sex with men (MSM), individuals with poor literacy skills, and recently released prisoners transitioning back into the community.
