What is the Positive Perspectives Wave 2 study?
The Global Positive Perspectives Wave 2 Study is one of the largest, global, HIV patient-reported outcomes studies to date, involving 2,389 people living with HIV (PLHIV) aged 18-84 across 25 countries. Building on insights gained from the initial Positive Perspectives Wave 1 survey, results from Positive Perspectives 2 reveal the experiences of PLHIV, reflecting changes in HIV care and providing insights into aspects of quality of life that need to be addressed across several key areas including:
