The T2TQ study aims to use a qualitative longitudinal approach to explore the experiences of people living with HIV (PLHIV) at different points in the testing/treatment trajectory in order to understand the factors influencing testing, treatment initiation and adherence among target populations in Queensland.

The study explores these experiences from the perspectives of: individuals who do not engage in regular testing; those who have recently been tested; those who have been recently diagnosed (defined as those receiving an initial HIV diagnosis within the past five years) who are traversing the testing/treatment trajectory; and health care providers. 

The research team includes a PhD scholar, Olivia Hollingdrake, who has been specifically funded to work on the study.
