Ethics approval and consent to participate
: The study Examining the Impact of Medical Legal Partnerships in Improving Outcomes on the HIV Care Continuum was approved by the Institutional Review Board of Temple University (TU IRB #25205). Participants of the online survey data collection will provide written consent prior to initiate the survey. Participants of the dyad interviews and group discussions will provide verbal consent and a copy of the consent form will be provided to the participants. Temple University Institutional Review Board deemed not necessary to collect written consent of participants of the qualitative components because of the study itself was considered at minimal risk level, collecting signatures increase the threat to privacy violations for providers, and the identities of people living with HIV, and because the interviews and group discussions will not be about the personal lives of the participants but rather about their experiences and perspectives of medical-legal partnerships in addressing the needs of people living with HIV.
