Provider and Peer Support Intervention to Improve ART Adherence Among Kenyan Men

Funding: NIMH 1R34MH099946
PI: Susan Graham
Time Period: 09/01/2012-08/31/2015

This 3-year developmental project will design and pilot test a culturally appropriate and generalizable antiretroviral adherence intervention for African MSM. Our specific aims are to: (1) conduct qualitative research including in-depth interviews and focus groups with HIV-1 seropositive MSM, treatment-experienced peers, and their providers; (2) design and field test a theoretically driven intervention for MSM combining provider and peer support; and (3) implement a pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT) of the resulting multi-component versus standard care with 60 MSM participants.
