The purpose of the project is to implement and evaluate an HIV clinic-based intervention, the goals of which are to increase the percentage of patients who have an undetectable viral load, who are adherent to antiretroviral therapy (ART), who attend clinic regularly for primary care, and practice safer sexual behaviors.

These are objectives of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and goals of the strategic plan of the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This proposed data collection will occur over 3 years. The intervention that is part of this project focuses primarily on HIV patients who have a detectable viral load, i.e., their viral load is not as low as it can be and is not fully controlled. The intervention components include: (1) Brief counseling from medical providers during primary care visits informed by a behavioral screener completed by patients; (2) a computerbased intervention (CBI) in which patients see short videos of HIV medical providers (not their own providers) talking about the importance of regular clinic attendance, adherence to ART, and safer sex; and (3) one-on-one counseling from a prevention specialist if needed. The following data will be collected in this project: • A data manager at each clinic will electronically transmit patient clinical data to CDC using a unique study identification code as the only means of identifying a patient’s data. The data files sent to CDC will not contain any medical record numbers, names, or social security numbers. The information will be encrypted and stored in a secure CDC server. The data collected from patients include (1) a behavioral screener self-administered by patients each time they have a primary care visit. Patients complete the screener in the waiting room before seeing their primary care provider. (2) CBI assessment items on demographic factors, clinic attendance, ART status, ART adherence, and sexual risk behavior that are completed before patients see the CBI videos. Patients with detectable viral loads will be asked to do the CBI three times, spaced approximately three months apart. Patients’ CBI responses are not shared with their clinic providers. (3) On a quarterly basis, 50 patients at each clinic will be asked to complete a brief exit survey after their medical exam, asking about topics that the provider may have discussed with them at their medical visit (e.g., adherence, clinic attendance). • Data collected from primary care medical providers includes a quarterly survey asking them to indicate the types of topics/issues they discussed with their HIV patients.
