Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is well known for being a sexually transmitted virus that will result in Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) if left untreated. Some individuals are unaware of the other risk factors that can result in the transmission of HIV. The transmission of HIV can occur through the spread of HIV-positive blood, oral, anal, and vaginal sex without a condom or protection, sharing injection drug equipment, and perinatal transmission (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2022). Despite advances in Antiretroviral treatments (ART) for HIV, there are still factors that are preventing individuals living with HIV/AIDS to maintain or suppresses their viral load. This study will evaluate sociodemographics, comorbidities, and types of services as factors that impact prevention therapy for individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
