(HIV) Engage is a year-long study looking to better understand the experiences of people who are newly diagnosed with HIV and the improvement of their care.


The study is about medical care for new HIV patients. It is designed to help patients with HIV better engage in primary care, which means regularly attending medical appointments over time. The study is 8 appointments long; the first is in person and the follow-ups are over the phone. These appointments consist of a baseline, 1-, 3-, 6-, and 12-month follow-ups, and two meetings about HIV with a study staff person. You will randomly be assigned to one of two groups, which will determine the specific content of the two meetings. Participants can make up to $150 for their time.


Over 18, newly diagnosed with HIV, can speak English
