Recruiting Smokers with HIV (Truth Initiative)


We are seeking volunteers to participate in a research study being done to understand how to create a quit smoking program for people in the Washington, D.C. area who have HIV and who smoke. We want to understand what type of support system, types of messages, and ways of providing support are best for people living with HIV. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, have HIV infection, currently smoke cigarettes every day, and not currently have any major medical condition (such as heart disease not controlled by medication). Participants receive up to $125.

Two study visits are required, which will last approximately 1 hour each. All participants will get advice on how to quit smoking. Some participants will be signed up for a text messaging program, which will last for 30 days.

If you are interested, please contact study staff at 202-454-5746 or
