Ethics and privacy 

Your participation in the in-depth interview and survey will be kept confidential. All identifying information will be removed from the interview transcripts. Deidentified quotes (i.e. they will not contain any identifying information) from participants may be used in publications.

What do I have to do? 

We will ask you to take part in an in-depth interview with the option to participate in a follow-up interview. The interview will provide an opportunity for you to talk about your experience of HIV in more detail.


As well as the interviews, you may be asked to complete a 6-monthly online survey, which should take about 35–45 minutes.
