On December 9, the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes (JAIDS) published a supplement highlighting the effectiveness of health communication in keeping people engaged and on treatment throughout the HIV continuum of care – leading to more positive health outcomes.

The supplement, Impact of Health Communication on the HIV Continuum of Care, presents a series of 10 articles that make the case for using health communication in highly diverse HIV contexts in low- and middle-income settings.


Please take a look and feel free to spread the word among your colleagues by sharing within your networks.

The articles in this supplement are open access.
