This brief addresses the evidence linking savings groups (SGs), community-based groups of people who save together and provide members with low-interest loans from the accumulated group savings, to HIV outcomes. Evidence to date indicates that SG participation is associated with HIV risk reduction and that SGs may contribute to improved adherence among adults living with HIV.
