In this study which looks at the impact on access to HIV care by UN Plus Kenya, the researcher interviewed 41 staff members living with HIV. The interviews took place in one of the UN Plus meetings. For those who were unavailable at the meeting/non UN Plus members, the researcher sought for appointments with individual members while keeping confidentially during the process. The literature review revealed a similarity in the outcome of viral load suppression. The data revealed some few staff members who were not doing as well as the others and who may have to be followed up for further care.

Adequate time is required to give more attention and better analysis of all the results from this study.
