Study Summary

This trial is testing a combined community health worker and smartphone intervention linked to a smart pill box for antiretroviral adherence in HIV positive people in the United States. The goal is to see if this intervention enables people to self-manage their antiretroviral regimens while CHW monitor their adherence in real-time, ultimately leading to viral suppression and adherence.
