Empowerment is an ongoing process through which individuals and communities appropriate power and acquire the capability to function autonomously. Research on empowerment in men who have sex with men (MSM) is lacking in community-based contexts. We investigated the relationship between willingness to be empowered and HIV care needs in West African MSM accessing community-based organisations' (CBO) services. Read More

a School of Public Health/ Key Lab of Health Technology Assessment, National Health and Family Planning Commission of the People's Republic of China , Fudan University , Shanghai , People's Republic of China.

Discrimination of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) is a persistent issue in China, which affects their psychological health. However, the association between psychological factors and adherence to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has not been systematically investigated before. Therefore, this study examined the impact of social support, depression, and medication-taking self-efficacy on ART adherence among PLWHA based on Cha et al. Read More

Correlates of antiretroviral coverage for prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.

AIDS Care 2019 Mar 4:1-6. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

f Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, College of Medicine , University of Nigeria , Nsukka , Enugu , Nigeria.

Antiretroviral (ARV) drugs are effective in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT), however many sub-Saharan African countries are yet to achieve universal ARV coverage among pregnant women living with HIV. This study examined factors associated with ARV coverage for PMTCT in 41 sub-Saharan Africa countries. Country-level aggregated data were obtained from the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, World Health Organization, and United Nations Children's Fund. Read More

AIDS Care 2019 Mar 1:1-8. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

a Department of Sexology , Université du Québec à Montréal , Montreal , Quebec , Canada.

Previous maternity experiences may influence subsequent reproductive intentions and motherhood experiences. We used latent class analysis to identify patterns of early motherhood experience reported for the most recent live birth of 905 women living with HIV enrolled in the Canadian HIV Women's Sexual and Reproductive Health Cohort Study (CHIWOS). Four indicators were used: difficulties getting pregnant, feelings when finding out pregnancy, feelings during pregnancy, and feelings during the first year postpartum. Read More

A missing perspective: injectable pre-exposure prophylaxis for people who inject drugs.

AIDS Care 2019 Mar 1:1-7. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

h Department of Community Health Sciences , Boston University School of Public Health , Boston , MA , USA.

The efficacy of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention has been established among people who inject drugs (PWID). HIV uninfected, at risk PWID, could likely benefit from long-acting injectable formulations of PrEP ("LAI-PrEP"); however, its acceptability in this population has not been previously documented. Thirty-three HIV-uninfected PWID in the U. Read More

Utilization and avoidance of sexual health services and providers by YMSM and transgender youth assigned male at birth in Chicago.

AIDS Care 2019 Mar 1:1-8. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

a Department of Medical Social Sciences , Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine , Chicago , IL , USA.

Young men who have sex with men (YMSM) and transgender youth assigned male at birth (AMAB) bear a disproportionate burden of the HIV epidemic, yet are sub optimally engaged by sexual health service providers and HIV prevention services. To increase sexual health and HIV prevention behaviors and address disparities in HIV incidence and outcomes among YMSM and AMAB transgender youth, it is critical to understand patterns of service utilization and avoidance. This study examined how and why YMSM and AMAB transgender youth use or avoid sexual health services and service providers in a large Midwestern city within a survey administered to 890 participants from a longitudinal cohort study (RADAR).

Women's perspectives on ImpACT: a coping intervention to address sexual trauma and improve HIV care engagement in Cape Town, South Africa.

AIDS Care 2019 Mar 1:1-8. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

a Duke Global Health Institute , Duke University , Durham , NC , USA.

HIV-infected women who have experienced sexual violence face unique challenges in their HIV care engagement and adherence to antiretroviral medications (ARVs). Improving AIDS Care after Trauma (ImpACT) is a brief counseling intervention aimed at reducing the negative impact of sexual trauma and HIV, building coping skills, and improving long-term HIV care engagement. We conducted a randomized controlled pilot trial of ImpACT with 64 women initiating ARVs in Cape Town, South Africa, with results suggesting the intervention can reduce PTSD symptoms and increase motivation to adhere to ARVs.

"We write as little as we have to": charting practices and documenting disclosure in response to HIV criminalization in Canada.

AIDS Care 2019 Mar 1:1-6. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

b School of Political Studies , University of Ottawa , Ottawa , Canada.

The criminalization of HIV nondisclosure is reshaping the landscape of support and care for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). Focusing on Canada, this article examines how criminalization is reshaping the relationships between frontline AIDS Service Organization (ASO) workers and their HIV-positive service users. Using data gleaned through semi-structured interviews with N = 62 frontline ASO staff members across Canada that were coded using thematic analysis, we describe how ASO workers are rethinking and altering their notetaking practices in light of fears about criminalization and how their charts may be used by legal actors.
