The National Institutes of Health, otherwise known as NIH, is an agency that is operating under the United States Department of Human Health and Services.
The NIH is largely responsible for conducting the country's most innovative bio-medical and health-related research studies.
The efforts of the NIH have been constantly geared towards making important and innovative medical decisions that would benefit the health of everyone.
The National Institutes of Health has recently established a program entitled Improving Adherence to Treatment Regimens for HIV-Positive Adolescents and Young Adults wherein they intend to kick-off research studies that will create, implement, and evaluate both old and new interventions that are geared towards improving adherence to medical and behavioral regimens for HIV-positive adolescents which are 11 to 21 years old and adults who are 21 to 24 years old.
In order to achieve the objectives of the program, the NIH has outlined that the recipients of the grant should conduct studies that will look into individual, family, social, political, and contextual factors that could potentially influence adherence.
Furthermore, the NIH also requires that as a response to the data gathered from the studies, the recipients of the grant must also develop innovative measures of adherence or refine existing measures in order to make them better and more efficient.
The end goal of the Improving Adherence to Treatment Regimens for HIV-Positive Adolescents and Young Adults is to alleviate or totally lessen the possibility of HIV transmission and to improve the outcomes in HIV-positive adolescents and adults.
