Abstract

Using a repeated assessment of 185 women with HIV in three national service demonstration projects that focus on reducing barriers to care, self-reported barriers to obtaining services decreased significantly over time. At the earliest time asked, participants scored an average of 5.23 on a measure of barriers to obtaining care. At the most recent time asked, they scored an average of 4.05 on the barrier measure. In a subsample of 122 women with HIV, it was found that self-reported facilitators to obtaining services increased significantly over time. At the first time asked, participants scored an average of 8.40 on a measure of facilitators to receiving services. At the most recent time asked, they scored an average of 8.98 on the facilitator measure. Results are discussed in terms of implications for designing services to minimize barriers and maximize facilitators to care for people living with HIV/AIDS.
