Peer Supported Treatment Decisions
Do you find HIV treatment decisions or adherence
to be difficult or stressful?
Do the following apply to you?
Are you HIV-positive?
Do you identify as a gay or bisexual man?
Do you have a detectable viral load and either
are not currently on HIV medications or
are having trouble following your HIV medication schedule?
This research project offers four confidential, one-on-one peer-facilitated counselling sessions (approximately one hour) for gay and bisexual men who are HIV-positive. Meetings will take place for 3 consecutive weeks plus one follow-up meeting 3 months later.
This research project has two key objectives:
To enhance community-based research by assessing the feasibility of peers using Motivational Interviewing to assist with HIV treatment decisions
To support gay and bisexual, HIV-positive men who are struggling with HIV treatment decisions or adherence
