Applying the Medical Research Council guidance to develop and evaluate interventions to support uptake and adherence to antiretroviral therapy for HIV
Welcome to the SUPA Programme (RP-PG-0109-10047) a project currently being conducted at The Centre for Behavioural Medicine at UCL and funded by the National Institute for Health Research. Our research will focus on examining how people’s beliefs about antiretroviral therapy (ART) for HIV change over time and whether a treatment support intervention is successful in promoting uptake and adherence to ART. SUPA started in 2011 and will continue until late 2016.
The SUPA grant is led by Professor Rob Horne, Professor of Behavioural Medicine at UCL and is hosted by Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust. The research team is a world-class collaboration of academics, clinicians, HIV service users, NHS commissioners and managers, including representatives from HIV i-Base and Christian Aid.
