Decreasing Interruption & Losses from HIV Care in Nigeria (K23 AI106406-04)
Both loss to follow-up and unplanned care interruption from HIV care are of critical public health importance as they are each associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, negating the gains in life expectancy provided by antiretroviral therapy. The proposed research, focused in a large multi-site HIV treatment program in Nigeria, will identify novel factors that influence patient decisions and outcomes related to adherence to HIV care over time.
