Table 5 Mean respondents’ stigma scores, before and after CATS intervention

From: Effectiveness of community adolescent treatment supporters (CATS) interventions in improving linkage and retention in care, adherence to ART and psychosocial well-being: a randomised trial among adolescents living with HIV in rural Zimbabwe

Research Arm Baseline (mean point count) Count (N) End line (mean point count) Count (N) Difference (95% CI) P value
Intervention 2.79 37 2.77 24 0.02% (− 0.188, 0.228%) 0.848
Control 2.52 39 3.03 17 0.51% (0.13, 0.89%) 0.01
  1. Mean respondents’ stigma scores, before and after CATS intervention is measured using mean score given for both the intervention and control arm, and both at baseline and endline. N = 37 for the intervention arm at baseline, N = 39 for the control arm at baseline, N = 24 for the intervention arm at end line, and N = 17 for the control arm at endline. Difference between the baseline and endline is provided (including the 95% CI). Difference between baseline and endline is statistically significant if p < 0.05. The bold text under p-value column show statistical significance
