Benefits and risks of participating
Will being in this study help me in any way?

We cannot promise any benefits to you or others from your taking part in this research. It is possible that you may feel it is helpful to answer questions about your experience. If you take part in this study, you may help others in the future. Information from this study may be used in the future to help other people who have had a similar experience.

Is there any way being in this study could be bad for me?

You may feel that answering some of these questions is upsetting. If this happens, you do not have to answer that question if you do not want to. You may skip to the next question or you can stop the interview. We can give you information on how to contact national hotlines, if needed. Another risk is that you may worry that others will find out about the HIV treatment provided. None of your identifying information will be included in the interview. Only people on the research team will know that you are in the research study and will see your information. We cannot promise complete confidentiality.
