Medication Adherence in HIV (MAHIV) Study

King’s researchers seek volunteers with HIV taking antiretroviral treatment for online study. Please share!

Who is conducting the study?
This study aims to be part of a larger research project being conducted by researchers at The Section of Health Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London. The study is being conducted by the Chief Investigator (Dr. Anthony Harrison) in collaboration with other researchers in the field, including Mr Liam Timmins, Dr Christopher Graham, Dr Whitney Scott, and Professor Lance McCracken.

What is the purpose of the study?
Research has shown that people with HIV may not always take their antiretroviral treatment (ART). To date research has shown that how people think and feel is related to whether they take ART or not, where most studies have focused on people’s mood or beliefs about their medication or illness. However, less research has explored how people relate to their thinking, and how certain types of behaviour might also impact on an individual’s medication taking. We are interested in how people with HIV respond to taking ART, how much it affects them, and how they deal with it on the day-to-day. Understanding how people with HIV relate to their thinking about ART, and how they behave, day-to-day will help researchers develop new treatments aiming to improve people’s adherence to ART in HIV.
