The purpose of this study is to develop a new mobile health system that will send text messages to remind both pregnant and non-pregnant women with HIV to adhere to their treatment plan (e.g. keeping appointments, filling prescriptions and taking their medication) and address individual barriers to HIV care (like stigma, medical mistrust and resilience). Investigators also want to see if this new system is feasible, easily accepted and if it will impact patient health in a positive way.
This is a randomized trial, with some patients receiving Standard of Care Treatment and others receiving additional mobile health intervention. There will also be a focus group contributing to the design and wording of the mobile health system. The estimated enrollment is 75 participants. The study began on May 30th 2019 and is estimated to reach completion by November 30th 2020.
