  • Description:
    The Peer Support intervention (i.e., peer support only or peer support with pager messaging) is an individual- and group-level intervention. Clinic patients who are HIVpositive and currently on HAART serve as “peers” who provide medication-related social support through group meetings and weekly individual telephone calls. Group meetings, led by the peers and research staff with graduate training in psychology, are designed to give patients an opportunity to interact face-to-face with their assigned peer, meet other peers and patients, and share experiences with the group. Meeting discussions center on the identification of barriers to HAART adherence, problem-solving strategies to overcome barriers, and other life issues that impact adherence, including HIV status disclosure, dating, substance use, and struggles with mental health issues. Weekly peer phone calls provide more in-depth one-on-one attention and feedback. Peers do not initiate contact with patients outside of the intervention schedule but respond to requests for contact from the patients at their own discretion.
