Experimental: Single Arm Intervention Study
All participants will receive individualized text messages based on a schedule determined during the development and refinement of the mHealth text messaging intervention (i.e., once or twice a week). All participants will receive text messages for: 1) medication reminders, 2) appointment reminders, and 3) text messages addressing barriers (educational information to improve HIV knowledge) or promoting facilitators (e.g., routinizing taking of HIV antiretroviral medication) of care engagement. Each participant will complete baseline assessments, and will select their preferences for personalized messages on the day of baseline assessments. Text messages will be deployed for the duration of the 30-day trial. Participants will be followed-up at the completion of the 30-day intervention. Each participant will be asked to complete a follow-up survey, including questions on the acceptability of the mHealth intervention.
Other: Text messaging
Text messaging mHealth intervention to improve HIV Primary Care Engagement among clients of methadone maintenance treatment programs who are living with HIV.
- Acceptability of Intervention [ Time Frame: 30 days ]Acceptability of the intervention will be measured using the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) scale.
- Feasibility of Intervention [ Time Frame: 30 days ]Feasibility of the intervention will be assessed focusing on study implementation, including recruitment and attrition rates.
- Efficacy of the intervention [ Time Frame: 30 days ]Preliminary efficacy of the intervention will be measured using the HIV Treatment Adherence Self-Efficacy Scale (HIV-ASES) and the HIV appointment adherence questionnaire.
- Self-efficacy to self-manage HIV infection [ Time Frame: 30 days ]Changes in self-efficacy to self-manage HIV infection will be measured using the self-management scale applied to persons with HIV/AIDS.
- Improvements in HIV knowledge [ Time Frame: 30 days ]Improvements in HIV knowledge will be measured by changes in HIV knowledge. We will use the HIV Knowledge Questionnaire (HIV-KQ-18) at baseline and at 30 days post baseline assessments to measure changes in HIV knowledge.
