Improving antiretroviral treatment (ART) initiation for people living with HIV in Australia: a realistic and viable approach?
Sub-study 3: interviewing people diagnosed with HIV currently not on ART
The National Centre in HIV Social Research, UNSW and National Association of People Living with HIV/AIDS (NAPWA) would like to invite people to participate in an in-depth interview, either face-to-face (for those live in urban Sydney) or by phone or Skype (for those live outside of metropolitan Sydney or interstate). The interview will last approximately 1-2 hours.
Funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council, the study aims to understand reasons for deferring or non-use of ART for people with HIV. We hope to identify clinical, personal, social and structural barriers to ART treatment uptake and reasons for ART non-use.
If you are aged 18 years or above, have sufficient proficiency in English to participate in a conversation style interview, and are not taking ART currently, we would like to hear from you.
If you decide to participate, you can either contact Brent Beadle via phone (02) 8568 0300 or email (email@example.com
) or through your local HIV community organisations.
With your consent, the interview will be audio-recorded. All information obtained in connection with study will remain confidential. You will be reimbursed with a Coles gift voucher valued at AUD30.
