Fact Sheets

Computerized Counseling Improves Care for Persons Living with HIV

CARE+, a computerized counseling intervention to improve antiretroviral therapy (ART) and reduce transmission by people living with HIV, was found to reduce HIV viral load, increase the percentage of ART medication doses and decrease sexual transmission behaviors. In addition, the CARE+ intervention was well received by participants. They judged it to as much or more helpful than face-to-face counseling from a staff member. See more details of these findings in our new fact sheet.
