Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To examine the literature and evidence surrounding peer-based interventions for HIV positive women to determine:
1. The effectiveness of these strategies in improving the physical, mental and psychosocial health of women.

2. Whether these strategies decrease health inequalities between advantaged and disadvantaged groups. Disadvantage will be defined and evaluated across eight factors summarized by the acronym PROGRESS (see outcomes for further definition).
