    • Description:
      The purpose of antiretroviral therapy (ART) for HIV is to decrease HIV-related morbidity and mortality. Successful ART requires taking nearly all doses exactly as prescribed, including frequency per day and time of day. Medication adherence is the act of taking medications as prescribed. Medication adherence interventions are interventions designed to increase patients' adherence to medications. ART adherence interventions are medication adherence interventions designed to improve adherence specifically to ART. ART adherence interventions focus on not only supporting patients to take medications as prescribed, but also on engaging patients in the intervention program and their self-care. The aim of the ART adherence interventions described in this document is to support and enable providers to help patients routinely take ART doses as prescribed using structured programs that include attending clinic visits organized to support medication adherence. Although improving medication adherence is the objective of ART adherence interventions, the ultimate goals are to maximize the benefits of ART to improve health. This program monitoring companion for selected antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence interventions was developed with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
