dc.description.abstract BACKGROUND: Stigma affects access and treatment outcomes in men who have sex with men. We assessed the effect of novel community health worker-led antiretroviral therapy delivery (CLAD). METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of routinely collected data was conducted. We used the t-test to compare the mean adherence to scheduled drug refill appointments before and after implementing CLAD. RESULTS: The mean adherence to drug refill was 1.4 (+/-0.7 SD) of monthly scheduled refills before CLAD and 4.7 (+/-1.2 SD) of monthly refills in CLAD (P < 0.001). CONCLUSION: The CLAD model was more effective for drug refill appointments than a regular HIV clinic. en_US
