Retention in HIV Care for Hispanic Immigrants

Description

A randomized trial to test the feasibility and acceptability of an intervention to improve retention in HIV primary care in HIV-infected Hispanic immigrants compared to a "treatment as usual" condition. We will measure feasibility, acceptability, study retention, and effect sizes of outcomes in order to inform a larger trial. The intervention design is based on qualitative research with HIV-infected Hispanic immigrants and their HIV providers. The intervention will be led by a Spanish-speaking community health worker trained in HIV health promotion.
