The study, called Long-Acting Therapy to Improve Treatment Success in Daily Life, or LATITUDE, will help determine whether a combination of two experimental injectable formulations of ART are superior to conventional oral ART in managing HIV infection in this population.

Long term adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART) is important in both reducing morbidly and mortality in people living with HIV and reducing transmission rates. A new study published in AIDS Research and Therapy explores people’s reasons for non-adherence to ART through a cohort in Uganda. They find travel, stigma, poor adherence education, and alternative medicine to be prominent factors.
