Interventions for tobacco use cessation in people living with HIV and AIDS

  • Protocol
  • Intervention



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

Primary objective:

1. To assess the effectiveness of interventions to motivate and assist tobacco use cessation for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), and to evaluate the risks of any harms associated with those interventions.

Secondary objectives:

1. To assess whether interventions combining pharmacotherapy and behavioural support are more effective than either type of support alone in PLWHA.

2. To assess whether in PLWHA, tobacco cessation or cessation induction interventions tailored to PLWHA are more effective than ‘usual care’ non-tailored cessation interventions.
