  • Systematic Review of Interventions for Depression for People Living with
           HIV in Africa
    • Authors: Sarah M. Lofgren; Noeline Nakasujja; David R. Boulware
      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: Abstract Depression interventions for individuals with HIV/AIDS in Africa are being increasingly evaluated. MEDLINE was searched using key terms: depression, Africa, and HIV, to identify depression interventions for HIV-infected adults in Africa. Perinatal women were excluded. Results were extracted and relative change in depression scores for interventions and net effect calculated. The MEDLINE search yielded 18 articles. Six of seven studies evaluating feasibility were positive, and seven of seven studies evaluating acceptability were also positive. Three studies investigated the effect of psychotherapy (% relative decrease of depressive symptoms for intervention: %net decrease compared to controls) (73%:39% decrease). Four studies investigated task-shifting of psychotherapy (47%:34% decrease). Three studies evaluated antidepressants (79%:39% decrease). Three studies investigated task-shifting of antidepressant treatment (82%:65% decrease). An exercise intervention was evaluated (66%:49% decrease). One trial investigated minocycline with non-statistically significant results. Finally, three studies investigated other psychosocial interventions (44%:21% decrease). Overall, the results highlight the need for large, randomized trials to establish efficacy as well as implementation studies.

  • A Randomized Crossover Study Evaluating the Use and Acceptability of the
           SILCS Diaphragm Compared to Vaginal Applicators for Vaginal Gel Delivery
    • Authors: Mags Beksinska; Ross Greener; Jenni Smit; Busi Maphumulo; Nonhlanhla Mphili; Maggie Kilbourne-Brook; Patricia S. Coffey
      Pages: 127 - 132
      Abstract: Introduction This study aimed to assess acceptability and preferences for the SILCS diaphragm for vaginal gel delivery compared to a prefilled applicator. Methods A randomized crossover study among 115 women in South Africa, using both methods during five sex acts. Results We found no significant differences in acceptability between the two products. Experience of gel leakage after sex was greater when inserted via applicator. More women were interested in SILCS/gel for multipurpose protection (68%) than in either SILCS alone (17%) or microbicide gel alone (14%). Conclusions A SILCS gel delivery system for multipurpose prevention seems feasible and acceptable.

  • A Strengths-Based Case Management Intervention to Reduce HIV Viral Load
           Among People Who Use Drugs
    • Authors: Alex H. Kral; Barrot H. Lambdin; Megan Comfort; Christina Powers; Helen Cheng; Andrea M. Lopez; Robert O. Murdoch; Torsten B. Neilands; Jennifer Lorvick
      Pages: 146 - 153
      Abstract: Abstract Engaging highly marginalized HIV positive people in sustained medical care is vital for optimized health and prevention efforts. Prior studies have found that strengths-based case management helps link people who use drugs to HIV care. We conducted a pilot to assess whether a strengths-based case management intervention may help people who use injection drugs (PWID) or smoke crack cocaine (PWSC) achieve undetectable HIV viral load. PWID and PWSC were recruited in Oakland, California using targeted sampling methods and referral from jails and were tested for HIV. HIV positive participants not receiving HIV care (n = 19) were enrolled in a pilot strengths-based case management intervention and HIV positive participants already in HIV care (n = 29) were followed as comparison participants. The intervention was conducted by a social worker and an HIV physician. Special attention was given to coordinating care as participants cycled through jail and community settings. Surveys and HIV viral load tests were conducted quarterly for up to 11 visits. HIV viral load became undetectable for significantly more participants in the intervention than in the comparison group by their last follow-up (intervention participants: 32% at baseline and 74% at last follow-up; comparison participants: 45% at baseline and 34% at last follow-up; p = 0.008). In repeated measures analysis, PBO intervention participants had higher odds of achieving undetectable viral load over time than comparison participants (p = 0.033).

      Abstract: Abstract Black men who have sex with men and women (MSMW) are among the populations at highest risk for HIV infection. We describe the evaluation of Project RISE, a six-session individual-level intervention developed for black MSMW using an ecosystems approach. A randomized controlled trial was used to test the effect of the intervention on sexual risk outcomes. Eligibility criteria included having both male and female sex partners in the past 12 months. Complete data at 5-month follow-up were collected from 86.7% of the 165 participants. In analyses controlling for HIV status, age, and baseline risk, intervention participants were found to have significantly greater reductions in number of female partners (p < 0.05) and total male and female partners (p < 0.05) at follow-up, compared to the control group. Intervention participants also were significantly more likely to report a reduction in number of sex episodes without a condom with female partners (p < 0.05) and with all partners (p < 0.02) at follow-up, compared to the control group.

  • Acceptability and HIV Prevention Benefits of a Peer-Based Model of Rapid
           Point of Care HIV Testing for Australian Gay, Bisexual and Other Men Who
           Have Sex with Men

      Pages: 178 - 189
      Abstract: Abstract Frequent HIV testing among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBM) is a strategic priority for HIV prevention in Australia. To overcome barriers to testing in conventional clinical services, Australia recently introduced peer HIV rapid point of care (RPOC) testing services for GBM. This mixed methods evaluation describes client acceptability and HIV prevention benefits of a peer HIV testing model. Most aspects of the service model were overwhelmingly acceptable to clients. Two-thirds of survey participants reported preferring testing with peers rather than doctors or nurses and over half reported learning something new about reducing HIV risk. Focus group findings suggested peer-delivered HIV RPOC testing reduced stigma-related barriers to frequent testing and provided novel opportunities for GBM to openly discuss HIV prevention and sexual practices, enhancing their HIV risk-reduction knowledge. Analysis of survey data suggested knowledge transfer occurred particularly among younger and less gay community-attached GBM.

  • Enhancing Adherence to Care in the HIV Care Continuum: The Barrier
           Elimination and Care Navigation (BEACON) Project Evaluation
    • Authors: Enbal Shacham; Julia D. López; Tawyna M. Brown; Kristen Tippit; Ann Ritz
      Pages: 258 - 264
      Abstract: Interventions are needed to address each phase of the HIV care continuum in order to improve health outcomes and reduce likelihood of HIV transmission. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of a community- and clinic-based intervention designed and implemented to reengage individuals who were lost to HIV care. Eligible participants had either never engaged in HIV care or had not had a medical visit for at least 12 months. Participants enrolled in a community- and clinic-based intervention that included intensive case management, access to a community nurse and peer navigator, as well as emergency stabilization funds. Data were collected at baseline and 6-month time points by the case managers; which included sociodemographics, general health, abstracted HIV viral loads and CD4 cell counts from their medical records. Descriptive and GEE analyses were conducted to assess changes from baseline to 6 months. A total of 322 participants enrolled over a 5-year period, of whom the majority were male (n = 250) and African American with a mean age of 42.0 years. After 6 months of the intervention, there was a significant increase of individuals who had undetectable HIV viral loads and their median CD4 cell counts increased (p < 0.01 for both). General health improved as well (p < 0.01). It is clear that this method of engagement, while staff intensive, is successful at engaging and retaining individuals in HIV care at least through 6 months.

  • Use of an Outreach Coordinator to Reengage and Retain Patients at Risk of
           Falling Out of HIV Care, Does the Amount of Time Matter'
    • Authors: Madelyne C. Bean; Linda Scott; Lauren E. Richey
      Pages: 321 - 324
      Abstract: Abstract Retention in care remains a major problem for people living with HIV and it is well known that retention in high quality HIV care improves clinical outcomes. This project used an outreach coordinator to perform phone and letter interventions to improve retention in patients at risk of falling out of care. Sixty-one (5%) patients were at risk in 2015 and received an intervention by the outreach coordinator. Fifty (82%) had a visit and 22 (36%) met the HRSA definition of retention. The mean time per patient was 59 min; therefore, it took 2.7 h to achieve each retained patient or 1.2 h for each patient with a visit. By calculation, minutes over 75 appeared to be the point of diminishing returns. Cost analysis resulted in a cost of less than $100 per patient.

  • Comparison of Home-Based Oral Fluid Rapid HIV Self-Testing Versus Mail-in
           Blood Sample Collection or Medical/Community HIV Testing By Young Adult
           Black, Hispanic, and White MSM: Results from a Randomized Trial
    • Authors: Roland C. Merchant; Melissa A. Clark; Tao Liu; Justin Romanoff; Joshua G. Rosenberger; Jose Bauermeister; Kenneth H. Mayer
      Pages: 337 - 346
      Abstract: Abstract We aimed to determine in a randomized trial if young adult black, Hispanic, and white men-who-have-sex-with-men (YMSM) are more likely to complete home-based oral fluid rapid HIV self-testing than either mail-in blood sample collection or medical facility/community organization-based HIV testing. Stratified by race/ethnicity, participants were randomly assigned to use a free oral fluid rapid HIV self-test (n = 142), a free mail-in blood sample collection HIV test (n = 142), or be tested at a medical facility/community organization of their choice (n = 141). Of the 425 participants, completion of assigned test (66% oral fluid vs. 40% mail-in blood sample vs. 56% medical facility/community), willingness to refer (36% oral fluid vs. 20% mail-in blood sample vs. 26% medical facility/community), and legitimate referrals (58% oral fluid vs. 43% mail-in blood sample vs. 43% medical facility/community) were greater in the oral fluid rapid HIV self-test than the mail-in blood sample collection HIV test arm, but not the medical facility/community testing arm. There were no differences in assigned test completion by race/ethnicity. Although free home-based oral fluid rapid HIV self-testing showed moderate promise in facilitating HIV testing among black, Hispanic, and white YMSM, it did not lead to greater testing than directing these YMSM to medical facility/community HIV testing venues.

      Abstract: Abstract Safe sexual behaviors and anti-retroviral use help prevent HIV transmission. In this cross-sectional study, we assessed correlates of anti-retroviral (ART) status and transmission risk (a constructed variable) among a convenience sample of n = 1041 HIV-positive women (pre-intervention) enrolled in an evidence-based intervention at four CBOs. Multinomial logistic regression models were used. Younger women and those diagnosed with HIV in the last 5 years more often reported that they had not been prescribed ART. Self-reported non-adherence to ART was less frequently reported among women who were older, had a higher HIV knowledge, and those with attitudes/beliefs supportive of condom use. The highest-risk transmission group (condomless sex with HIV-negative/unknown partner and not prescribed or non-adherent to ART) was associated with younger age, attitudes/beliefs less supportive of condom use, and low self-efficacy discussing condom use. Our findings inform HIV prevention efforts among similar populations of HIV-positive women enrolled in interventions at CBOs.

  • Child Desire Among Men and Women Living with HIV/AIDS in the Traditional
           Culture of Vietnam
    • Authors: Bach Xuan Tran; Ha Dai Duong; Anh Quynh Nguyen; Linh Dieu Pham; Tung Thanh Tran; Carl A. Latkin
      Abstract: Abstract In various settings, heterogeneity in fertility rates among HIV-affected couples highlights the importance of understanding contextual factors to inform program planning and implementation. We interviewed 1016 patients with HIV/AIDS at seven clinics in Vietnam to assess their desire to have a(nother) child and willingness to pay (WTP) for prevention of mother to child transmission (PMTCT) services. One-fifth of participants reported their desire for a(another) child and this was slightly higher among men than women. Factors associated with the desire to have a(nother) child of HIV/AIDS patients included (1) not yet have a child or a son, (2) provincial and district-level service, (3) income per capita, (4) marital status and (5) history of drug injection. The average WTP for PMTCT service was US $179 (95% CI 161–197). The study highlights the need for interventions on social, cultural barriers, improved accessibility and outcomes of counseling, and better care and treatment services for couples and child affected by HIV/AIDS.

  • Do Diary Studies Cause Behavior Change' An Examination of Reactivity
           in Sexual Risk and Substance Use in Young Men Who Have Sex with Men
    • Authors: Michael E. Newcomb; Gregory Swann; David Mohr; Brian Mustanski
      Abstract: Abstract Behavioral diaries are frequently used for observing sexual and substance use behaviors, but participating in diary studies may cause behavior change. This study examined change in sexual and substance use behaviors among young men who have sex with men (YMSM) in a two-month diary study compared to control. An analytic sample of 324 YMSM was randomized to receive daily diaries, weekly diaries, or no diaries (control) for 2 months. Half of the diary participants were randomized to receive automated weekly feedback. Between-subjects analyses found no evidence of change in sexual or substance use behaviors from baseline to 2-month follow-up when comparing the diary conditions to control. Within-persons growth mixture models of all diary data showed significant decreases in condomless anal sex (CAS) and illicit drug use. Weekly automated feedback had no effect on behavior change. Findings provide evidence of change in CAS and illicit drug use amongst diary participants.

  • The Relationship Between Risk Perception and Frequency of HIV Testing
           Among Men Who Have Sex with Men and Transgender Women, Lima, Peru
    • Authors: S. K. Vargas; K. A. Konda; S. R. Leon; B. Brown; J. D. Klausner; C. Lindan; C. F. Caceres
      Abstract: Abstract HIV infections in Peru are concentrated among men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women (TW). HIV testing rates among them remain low, delaying entrance into care. We assessed the prevalence of frequent HIV testing (at least every 6 months) and associated factors among 310 MSM and TW who attend sexual health clinics in Lima, Peru, and who reported that they were HIV seronegative or unaware of their status. Only 39% of participants tested frequently, and 22% had never tested; 29% reported that they were at low or no risk for acquiring HIV. Reporting low or no risk for acquiring HIV was associated with frequent testing (adjusted prevalence ratio [aPR] = 1.53, 95% CI 1.13–2.08); those reporting unprotected anal sex were less likely to test frequently (aPR = 0.66, 95% CI 0.50–0.87). HIV prevalence was 12% and did not vary by risk perception categories. This at-risk population tests infrequently and may not understand the risk of having unprotected sex.

  • Interventions that Address Intimate Partner Violence and HIV Among Women:
           A Systematic Review
    • Authors: Khiya J. Marshall; Dawnovise N. Fowler; Mikel L. Walters; Amanda B. Doreson
      Abstract: Abstract Recognizing the high prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive women and girls who are either at risk for or suffer from intimate partner violence (IPV) and the overlapping challenges posed by both public health issues, the White House established an Interagency Federal Working Group to address the intersection of both public health issues in 2012. We conducted this systematic review in response to the Working Group’s charge to identify and describe interventions that address both IPV and HIV among women. We identified 14 studies that met our inclusion criteria, including seven studies (nine unique intervention arms) that significantly affected at least one outcome related to IPV and HIV. In this article, we examine the characteristics of these studies including core components, intervention populations, and effectiveness data. We highlight opportunities to improve the effectiveness of existing interventions, guide future research about IPV and HIV, and inform prevention programmatic delivery. This knowledge will improve the lives of populations at risk, reduce gender-related health disparities, and ultimately reduce the societal burden of both public health issues.

  • Peer Support and the HIV Continuum of Care: Results from a Multi-Site
           Randomized Clinical Trial in Three Urban Clinics in the United States
    • Authors: Howard J. Cabral; Kendra Davis-Plourde; Mariana Sarango; Jane Fox; Joseph Palmisano; Serena Rajabiun
      Abstract: Abstract Racial/ethnic minorities living with HIV and behavioral health co-morbidities are more likely to be disengaged from HIV primary care. Peer programs have been effective in HIV outreach and prevention but effectiveness of such programs for retention in care and viral suppression is understudied. Subjects (n = 348) were randomized in equal allocation to a peer navigation and education intervention versus standard clinical care at three urban clinics in the United States. The intervention group received seven structured interventions plus weekly contact to address medical and social needs. Primary outcomes included time-to-first 4-month gap in HIV care and viral suppression up to 12 months of follow-up. Intention-to-treat analysis showed no difference between groups on 4-month gap in HIV primary care, but subgroup analysis showed a suggestive effect of the peer intervention in reducing gaps in care among stably housed subjects. Fully compliant subjects in the peer intervention experienced significantly fewer 4-month gaps in HIV primary care (p < 0.0001). Those in the peer group who had more clinical face-to-face encounters in the first 3 months were also significantly more likely to have better retention in care (p = 0.04). There were no significant differences between any study subgroups in viral suppression at 12 months. Peer interventions may improve retention in primary care among subgroups of people living with HIV from racial/ethnic minority communities, although such improved retention may not increase viral load suppression. Attending and completing structured educational sessions along with early, intensive contact with peers could improve retention in HIV primary care for patients. Future peer programs should consider training on housing referral systems to help increase retention for patients who are not stably housed. registration number: NCT01616940.

  • Patterns of Substance Use and Arrest Histories Among Hospitalized HIV Drug
           Users: A Latent Class Analysis
    • Authors: Karen Shiu-Yee; Ahnalee M. Brincks; Daniel J. Feaster; Jemima A. Frimpong; Ank Nijhawan; Raul N. Mandler; Robert Schwartz; Carlos del Rio; Lisa R. Metsch
      Abstract: Abstract Using baseline data from the NIDA Clinical Trials Network 0049 study (Project HOPE), we performed latent class analyses (LCA) to identify discrete classes, or clusters, of people living with HIV (PLWH) based on their past year substance use behaviors and lifetime arrest history. We also performed multinomial logistic regressions to identify key characteristics associated with class membership. We identified 5 classes of substance users (minimal drug users, cocaine users, substantial cocaine/hazardous alcohol users, problem polysubstance users, substantial cocaine/heroin users) and 3 classes of arrest history (minimal arrests, non-drug arrests, drug-related arrests). While several demographic variables such as age and being Black or Hispanic were associated with class membership for some of the latent classes, participation in substance use treatment was the only covariate that was significantly associated with membership in all classes in both substance use and arrest history LCA models. Our analyses reveal complex patterns of behaviors among substance using PLWH and suggest that HIV intervention strategies may need to take into consideration such nuanced differences to better inform future studies and program implementation.

  • Cost–Utility of Access to Care, a National HIV Linkage, Re-engagement
           and Retention in Care Program
    • Authors: Catherine Maulsby; A2C Intervention Team; Kriti M. Jain; Brian W. Weir; Blessing Enobun; Melissa Werner; Morey Riordan; David R. Holtgrave
      Abstract: Abstract Linkage to HIV medical care and on-going engagement in HIV medical care are vital for ending the HIV epidemic. However, little is known about the cost–utility of HIV linkage, re-engagement and retention (LRC) in care programs. This paper presents the cost–utility analysis of Access to Care, a national HIV LRC program. Using standard methods from the US Panel on Cost-Effectiveness in Health and Medicine, we calculated the cost–utility ratio. Seven Access to Care programs were cost-effective and two were cost-saving. This study adds to a small but growing body of evidence to support the cost-effectiveness of LRC programs.

  • A Bayesian Analysis of Prenatal Maternal Factors Predicting Nonadherence
           to Infant HIV Medication in South Africa
    • Authors: R. R. Cook; K. Peltzer; S. M. Weiss; V. J. Rodriguez; D. L. Jones
      Abstract: Abstract While efforts to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV been successful in some districts in South Africa, rates remain unacceptably high in others. This study utilized Bayesian logistic regression to examine maternal-level predictors of adherence to infant nevirapine prophylaxis, including intimate partner violence, maternal adherence, HIV serostatus disclosure reaction, recency of HIV diagnosis, and depression. Women (N = 303) were assessed during pregnancy and 6 weeks postpartum. Maternal adherence to antiretroviral therapy during pregnancy predicted an 80% reduction in the odds of infant nonadherence [OR 0.20, 95% posterior credible interval (.11, .38)], and maternal prenatal depression predicted an increase [OR 1.04, 95% PCI (1.01, 1.08)]. Results suggest that in rural South Africa, failure to provide medication to infants may arise from shared risk factors with maternal nonadherence. Intervening to increase maternal adherence and reduce depression may improve adherence to infant prophylaxis and ultimately reduce vertical transmission rates.

  • Mobile Health Technology for Improving Symptom Management in Low Income
           Persons Living with HIV
    • Authors: Rebecca Schnall; Hwayoung Cho; Alexander Mangone; Adrienne Pichon; Haomiao Jia
      Abstract: Abstract Persons living with HIV (PLWH) are living longer but experiencing more adverse symptoms associated with the disease and its treatment. This study aimed to examine the impact of a mHealth application (app) comprised of evidence-based self-care strategies on the symptom experience of PLWH. We conducted a 12-week feasibility study with 80 PLWH who were randomized (1:1) to a mHealth app, mobile Video Information Provider (mVIP), with self-care strategies for improving 13 commonly experienced symptoms in PLWH or to a control app. Intervention group participants showed a significantly greater improvement than the control group in 5 symptoms: anxiety (p = 0.001), depression (p = 0.001), neuropathy (p = 0.002), fever/chills/sweat (p = 0.037), and weight loss/wasting (p = 0.020). Participants in the intervention group showed greater improvement in adherence to their antiretroviral medications (p = 0.017) as compared to those in the control group. In this 12-week trial, mVIP was associated with improved symptom burden and increased medication adherence in PLWH.

      Abstract: Abstract The aim of this study is to investigate HIV-related healthcare needs and access barriers for Brazilian transgender and gender diverse people. Data were collected from gender identity clinics and the questionnaire was also made available on the Internet. Out of the 543 participants—62.1% (n = 337) transgender women, 28.7 (n = 156) transgender men and 9.2% (n = 50) gender diverse people, 63.7% had been tested at least once in their lives. The prevalence of self-reported HIV-positive status among transgender women was 16.5%, of which 92.0% reported having a physician with whom they regularly consulted about HIV, whereas none of the transgender men or gender diverse people reported HIV-positive status. In addition, 8.2% of transgender men and 12.5% of gender diverse people did not know their serological status. Finally, 71.0% of the participants were unfamiliar with post-exposure prophylaxis. The study discusses the need for adequate behavior-oriented HIV health policies and training of healthcare professionals regarding the needs of Brazilian transgender and gender diverse people.

  • Relationship Among HIV-Related Stigma, Mental Health and Quality of life
           for HIV-Positive Patients in Tehran
    • Authors: Mehrnaz Rasoolinajad; Nasrin Abedinia; Ahmad Ali Noorbala; Minoo Mohraz; Banafsheh Moradmand Badie; Abdulqader Hamad; Leyla Sahebi
      Abstract: Abstract People living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA) face several challenges in terms of the medical management of their disease. Alongside this are stigma, discrimination and psychosocial issues associated with HIV infection. In this study, the relationships associated with HIV-related stigma, mental health and quality of life for HIV-positive patients were investigated. This cross-sectional study examined a sample of 450 HIV positive patients from the Infectious Diseases and Behavioral Health Clinic of Imam Khomeini Hospital in the city of Tehran, Iran. PLWHA completed Socio-Demographic Characteristics, Berger Scale Stigma (BSS), General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-28), WHO Quality of life-BREF (WHOQOL-BREF) and Philips Social Support Appraisals (SSA). Stigma was significantly correlated with psychological variables, social support, and quality of life. A prevalence of psychiatric disorders was reported by 78.8%. Findings suggested that psychosocial interventions reduce HIV related stigma, address psychological disorders and build social support to improve quality of life for people living with HIV.
