Measuring Effects of Counseling to Increase Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Adherence and Partner Support in South Africa Using the Healthy Relationship Assessment Tool

In response to the diverse roles and strong influence that male partners may have in women’s decisions and ability to use HIV prevention products, we previously developed the counselor-administered Healthy Relationship Assessment Tool (HEART). This tool helps counselors tailor pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) adherence support counseling to women’s relationship dynamics with their sexual partners, suggesting modules for counselors to deliver. In this study, we examined the extent to which counselors used the HEART to guide the delivery of intervention modules and whether changes in subsequent HEART scores reflected the counseling module(s) received.
