  1. aRetention in care = meets criteria of having a primary care visit in 1st and 2nd halves of the study year
  2. bViral suppression = meets criteria of HIV viral load <40 copies/ml at most recent laboratory draw
  3. * Significant relationships for (a) viral suppression and gender (Fisher’s exact test (2-sided), p = .022), and (b) viral suppression and age (Fisher’s exact test (2-sided), p = .034)
