Adherence to HIV treatment among Ugandan adolescents
Adolescents living met HIV ought to be maximally retained in ART care as a prerequisite to viral suppression (Vaillant et al., 2021; Bisetegn et al., 2021; Oh and Han, 2021). In the Ugandan context however, it has been reported that less than 80% of the adolescents living with HIV and linked to care in Uganda are retained in care (AVERT, 2021).
In a project in Uganda, we will evaluate the possible impact of technology (smart phone apps) on behaviour change and retention in care among adolescents in Uganda. We have two opportunities for literature reviews as part of this project:
- Determinants of adherence to HIV treatment. In a literature review you will explore factors affecting and influencing adherence to HIV treatment among adolescents living with HIV and linked to care in Uganda.
- Characteristics of effective digital interventions to influence adherence. In this review you will explore characteristics of the effective health communication technologies for behavior change communication (among adolescents living with HIV in Uganda). I.e., knowledge, attitudes, and practices in the use of health communication technologies for behavior change among adolescents living with HIV in Uganda.
The reviews are preferably conducted in period 6, 2022. More information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
