Retention of patients in HIV care is incredibly important in the process of meeting the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets, administering timely treatment, viral suppression, and to avoid AIDS-related deaths. The authors of this article conducted a randomized trial to conclude whether a text-messaging intervention improved retention during the first year of HIV care. The study was done at two clinics in Nairobi, Kenya. The participants were 18 years or older, HIV positive, had their own personal mobile phone or access to one, and were able to use simple text messaging.
