Effective symptoms management is essential for PLWH. mHealth apps have the potential to be effective delivery mode of symptom self-management in underserved PLWH. A reverse card sorting technique was conducted to inform the development of a mHealth app for PLWH. Self-management strategies by symptoms participants experienced were organized with a hierarchy. Findings will be used to inform app navigation, hierarchical menus, and the priority order of self-management strategies.
