Matthew Spinelli is studying the impact of food security on HIV treatment outcomes in women living with HIV. Food security has been studied abroad as an impact on poor HIV control, as well as vulnerable populations living with HIV in the United States, but it has not been studied specifically in women living with HIV. This research could pave the way for interventions to address food security for women living with HIV such as a comprehensive meal programs linked to HIV care and behavioral health treatment.
