Preview

Patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection who were native to sub-Saharan Africa but lived in France were less adherent to antiretroviral therapy during a visit back to Africa, compared with their level of adherence in France. This was mainly related to self-perceived insufficient support from family members and/or fear of the consequences of disclosure of their HIV infection status to their family.
