Toronto area research project aims to support gay and bisexual, HIV-positive men who are struggling with HIV treatment decisions or adherence

Participants wanted

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
