    The role of financial incentives along the antiretroviral therapy adherence continuum: A qualitative sub-study of the HPTN 065 (TLC-Plus) study
    Offering financial incentives is one strategy to motivate adherence behaviors. This qualitative sub-study examines adherence barriers and the role of financial incentives to increase viral suppression among HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) 065 study participants. The authors suggest that financial incentives may be insufficient to overcome strong social or structural barriers and unnecessary for those committed to remaining adherent.

    A measurement error model approach to survey data integration: Combining information from two surveys
    Combining information from two surveys is a challenge in survey sampling, particularly when there are overlapping geographies. In such cases, dual frame estimation methods are employed to derive overall estimates while avoiding double contributions coming from the overlap area. In this paper, measurement error models were layered onto the dual frame approach, to appropriately account for potential measurement errors. The approach can be generalized to combine more than two sources of information.
