Text Me, Girl! is a 90-day theory-based, transgender-specific, automated text-messaging intervention designed to improve engagement, retention, and health outcomes along the HIV care continuum. The desired outcome is viral suppression among transgender women with HIV, aged 18–34, who are not linked to care, not retained in care, not prescribed antiretroviral therapy (ART), non-adherent to ART, or not virologically suppressed. The intervention serves to remind, educate, motivate, and encourage behaviors supporting retention in care and medication adherence.
