  • Abstract

    The purpose of this study was to pilot test the potential for improvement in antiretroviral medication adherence of an adapted group-based, multi-session, community-based Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) adherence and risk reduction intervention, Project ADHerence Education and Risk Evaluation (ADHERE). Project ADHERE was compared to a single-session group-based medication adherence intervention, Medication Adherence and Care Engagement (MACE). A secondary aim was to examine the impact of Project ADHERE on HIV risk behaviors (i.e., illicit drug use and unprotected sexual behavior). Formerly incarcerated Black drug offenders are at an elevated risk for HIV infection. Despite substantial research expressing the need for HIV prevention services for ex-offenders postrelease, this population has limited access to quality programming and services related to HIV risk reduction. This study seeks to inform and adapt an HIV risk reduction intervention to address the needs of formerly incarcerated Black drug offenders who are being released from prisons in the New York City metropolitan area. The study utilizes qualitative and quantitative methods to inform and adapt an HIV prevention intervention for this study population.
  • Abstract

    This study was conducted to address the following specific aims: 1) to examine individual-level, environmental and contextual factors that affect HIV risk-related behaviors (i.e. illicit drug use and risky sexual behavior) among formerly incarcerated Black male and female drug offenders; 2) to adapt Project START, an HIV risk reduction intervention for formerly incarcerated men, using data gathered from Aim 1, to increase access to HIV testing and address drivers of HIV vulnerability among recently released Black male and female drug offenders; and 3) to pilot test the feasibility and acceptability of the adapted Project START using a randomized clinical trial with 64 participants (32 men, 32 women).
  • Methods

    The study utilized a mixed-methods approach to investigate drivers of HIV risk among recently released Black drug offenders. The study occured in three phases implemented over the course of five years.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Performed consistency checks.; Created variable labels and/or value labels..
