Summary

Development and randomized controlled trail of a family-focused intervention to promote HIV medical adherence and HIV prevention among families affected by HIV/AIDS in Chennai, India (Amy Knowlton and Carl Latkin, PI's). The study sample will comprise sexually active married persons living with HIV/AIDS (n=400), their spouses (n=400), and supportive family members (n=400). Data collection will include risk behaviors, antiretroviral adherence, viral load, social network structure and functioning, family conflict, family functioning, and informal HIV caregiving and care receipt. Half of the PLHAs with their network members (spouse and family supporters) will be randomly assigned to the 8-session intervention condition; and the other half to the enhanced standard-of-care control condition. The intervention will include individual, dyadic- and family network-focused skills training sessions.
