This study aims to examine how alcohol use, conflict with a partner, as well as other factors, impact HIV medication adherence with a combination of a baseline interview (lasting approximately 90 minutes) and 60 consecutive days of short assessments (approximately 5 minutes long). The information collected will inform future efforts to develop interventions to improve HIV treatment outcomes.

Compensation is provided for completing the baseline interview and each daily assessment.
