Eligibility criteria and sub-optimal coverage inhibit many people living with HIV (PLWH) in Central America from receiving the health benefits of Antiretroviral Therapy (ART). A study conducted in Nicaragua El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Panama among PLWH used life histories and focus groups to identify key moments in the treatment continuum when adherence was compromised and to generate consensus regarding the key challenges. This presentation from the 10th International Conference on HIV treatment and Prevention Adherence includes the results from a subsample of men who have sex with men.
