Narrative experiences of interactions with pharmacists among African-born persons living with HIV: “It's mostly business.”

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although these participants now live in the U.S., they tend to keep their diagnosis secret. Some of the participants might not reveal it to a pharmacist when purchasing OTC medications. The lack of disclosure of their diagnosis has implications for treatment outcomes. Culturally appropriate care may be a way to build trust with PLWH of African origin so that they may feel more comfortable in consulting with pharmacists to help improve their care and outcomes.
