May 10, 2018 – At this month’s Los Angeles County Commission on HIV meeting, Laura Bogart, PhD of RAND Corporation, Matt G. Mutchler, PhD, of California State University Dominguez Hills and APLA Health, and Sean J. Lawrence and Damone Thomas of APLA Health presented on the community-engaged process of developing and testing Project Rise, a client-centered and culturally congruent treatment adherence counseling program for Black/African-Americans living with HIV. Their findings indicated that Rise had stronger effects on medication adherence than did prior HIV adherence intervention studies. In addition, the presenters described Rise 2.0, a new randomized controlled trial that is examining long-term effects of Rise on adherence and viral suppression.
