The aim of this study is to conduct a 12-week IPT+TAU versus wait list TAU in a cohort of HIV+GBV+ women in Nyanza Province to relieve depression and PTSD and improve ARV adherence. This pilot study will provide data on the efficacy trends, acceptability and feasibility of our IPT intervention and will generate preliminary findings for an R01-funded intervention to test the intervention's efficacy for remediating the effects of GBV trauma on mental health and HIV-related outcomes.
Hypothesis 1: IPT+ TAU will be more effective for reduction of depression and PTSD than TAU alone.
Hypothesis 2: IPT+TAU will be acceptable and feasible.
