Positive prevention programming is designed to improve the quality of HIV care and treatment, including social support, linkage to non-HIV clinical care services, and adherence coaching, to those living with HIV in Mozambique. Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health PI Carolyn Audet, Ph.D., and the Vanderbilt affiliated organization Friends in Global Health (FGH) is monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of several interventions aimed at improving HIV knowledge, increasing clinical referrals, and reducing risky behavior in HIV positive individuals. The program developed a monitoring system for tracking referrals to other services within the health system and between health services and community support groups. It also evaluates message delivery to patients by health providers during routine encounters and at support groups and meetings for People Living with HIV (PLHIV).
