ASPIRES Evidence Brief Series: Financial Education and HIV Outcomes

This brief summarizes the evidence for financial education, which involves building people’s skills around budgeting, saving, borrowing and using formal financial services, and its effects on HIV outcomes. Financial education builds individuals’ capacity to manage their money better and therefore can help them improve their economic situation. When combined with other health and/or economic strengthening interventions, financial education may improve HIV prevention and adherence to anti-retroviral therapy.
