HIV cure focus group/interview study

HIV cure–related research focus group of serodiscordant couples

A message from HIV researchers Danielle M. Campbell, Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, Los Angeles, CA, and Karine Dubé, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, Chapel Hill, NC about their research on HIV cure research with HIV-discordant couples:

“We are conducting a study on perceptions of participation in HIV cure research among HIV serodiscordant couples and would appreciate it if you could share information with anyone who may be interested. We are seeking a wide representation of “couples” (not restricted to monogamous) who consider themselves to be racial/ethnic, and/or sex and gender minorities (gay/bi/SGL/men, black, latino, asian, women, trans/GNC queer individuals). Perceptions about HIV cure and HIV cure related research has not been captured among this group to date. Please see the informational flier below and attached. If you could assist with recruiting a few couples to a focus group and/or couples interview, I’d sincerely appreciate it. Compensation is provided.”

You and your partner will be compensated $50 each for your time and participation in this online study. The focus group discussion will last for approximately 90 minutes.

Study participation is completely voluntary and your decision to participate will not affect your care. If you are interested in participating, please call Danielle at (424) 241-2115 for more information before October 1, 2020.
