Medication adherence has been proven to reduce the risk of building a resistance to antiretroviral therapy an individual is taking. While the importance of adherence is known, tools to assist are not covered by agencies or grants.
Simple reminders can improve the rate of adherence and extend the effectiveness of the medication. House of Joe (HOJ) will work to collect and distribute items that assist individuals with medication adherence.
Eventually, HOJ intends to implement an automated reminder system that utilizes text messages, emails, and phone calls to help patients adhere to their medication schedules.
