Abstract

The study examined whether the relationship between HIV stigma and medication adherence would be mediated by depression and anxiety among men who have sex with men (MSM) whom are living with HIV (PLWH). Participants completed an online survey that measured HIV stigma, medication adherence (using the ARMS) and symptoms of depression (Patient Health Questionnaire-9) and anxiety (Generalised Anxiety Disorder-7). Results indicated depression mediated the association between HIV stigma and medication adherence more strongly than anxiety.
