Adaptation of a Group-Based HIV RISK Reduction Intervention to a Mobile App for Young Sexual Minority Men.

AIDS Educ Prev 2018 Dec;30(6):449-462

Division of Adolescent Medicine, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital, Chicago, Illinois.

There is a dearth of evidence-based HIV prevention interventions for very young men who have sex with men (YMSM) ages 13-18 years, at high risk for HIV. We adapted the MyPEEPS intervention-an evidence-based, group-level intervention-to individual-level delivery by a mobile application. We used an expert panel review, in-depth interviews with YMSM (n = 40), and weekly meetings with the investigative team and the software development company to develop the mobile app. Read More

Lessons Learned From the Implementation of HIV Biological-Behavioral Surveys of Key Populations in the Caribbean.

AIDS Educ Prev 2018 Dec;30(6):528-541

Division of Global HIV and TB, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia.

In the Caribbean region, HIV prevalence is high among key population (KP) groups, such as sex workers and men who have sex with men. However, there is a lack of high-quality, population-level data estimating HIV prevalence and population sizes of KPs. The President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief has funded and completed five bio-behavioral surveillance (BBS) surveys using respondent-driven sampling methodology to target KP in the English-speaking Caribbean region.

Immediate Motivators to Seeking Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision Among HIV-Negative Adult Men in an Urban Setting in Botswana.

AIDS Educ Prev 2019 Apr;31(2):136-151

Botswana International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH), Gaborone, Botswana.

Randomized trials have shown that voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) significantly reduces HIV acquisition risk in men. We sought to identify subpopulations of Botswanan men with high levels of VMMC uptake by comparing an observational cohort of men presenting for circumcision services at two high-volume clinics in Botswana's capital city, Gabo-rone, with a matched, population-based random sample of uncircumcised men. Among these high uptake VMMC subpopulations, we then examined the immediate factors that play a role in men's decision to seek VMMC services. Read More

Condomless Group Sex Is Associated With HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Knowledge and Interest Uptake: A Cross-Sectional Study of Gay and Bisexual Men in Paris, France.

AIDS Educ Prev 2019 Apr;31(2):127-135

Spatial Epidemiology Lab, Department of Population Health, New York University School of Medicine, New York, New York.

As a prevention strategy, HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) may benefit men who participate in group sex, but little is known about PrEP among this group internationally and virtually nothing is known of the European context. This study used an online survey of gay men living in Paris, France to assess associations between group sex and awareness of, use and interest in PrEP in its once-daily, episodic, injectable, and microbicidal forms. Men reporting recent (within 3 months) condomless group sex were much more likely to report once-daily PrEP use than men with no group sex experience (41. Read More

Depression, Social Support, and Adherence to Antiretroviral Therapy Among People Living With HIV in Guangxi, China: A Longitudinal Study.

AIDS Educ Prev 2019 Feb;31(1):38-50

Institute of HIV/AIDS Control and Prevention, Guangxi CDC, Nanning, China.

Depression can result in poor adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART) among people living with HIV (PLHIV), and social support can help mitigate the negative relationship. However, little is known about how depression and social support synergistically influence ART adherence over time. The current study aims to explore longitudinal associations between them and examine which sources of social support can play a mediating role between depression and ART adherence over time.

Causes and Consequences of Drug Abuse: A Comparison Between Synthetic Drug and Heroin Users in Urban China.

AIDS Educ Prev 2019 Feb;31(1):1-16

Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, Shanghai, China.

This article examined the differences in causes and health consequences between synthetic drug and heroin abuse in urban China. Two-group comparisons were conducted to quantify differences in individual characteristics, causes of drug use, and HIV/STI risky sexual behavior between synthetic drug and heroin users; logistic regressions were employed to assess the net effect of synthetic drug use on risky sexual behavior. Results revealed that causes of synthetic drug use differed from those of heroin use; a combination of the knowledge gap concerning the harmful impact of synthetic drugs and the lesser punishment for their use appeared a main reason behind the shift from heroin to synthetic drugs; and synthetic drug use was a significant and powerful risk factor for HIV/STI risky sexual behavior.

University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois.

PrEP is greater than 90% effective at preventing HIV infection, but many people who are vulnerable to HIV choose not to take PrEP. Among women, men who have sex with women (MSW) and men who have sex with men (MSM) who tested HIV negative in our emergency department, we assessed behavioral risk factors, self-perception of HIV risk, and interest in PrEP linkage. Women had lower odds of perceiving any HIV risk versus no risk than MSM, while Whites had greater odds of perceiving themselves as high risk than Blacks. Read More

AIDS Educ Prev 2018 Jun;30(3):199-207

Department of Health Policy, Management, and Behavior, University at Albany School of Public Health, SUNY.

Looking towards the ultimate goal of ending the AIDS epidemic, we describe five areas for further development and application towards HIV policies: (1) setting measurable objectives to create a vision and monitor progress, (2) taking a health and wellness approach to goal-setting, (3) using impact matrices to inform quantitative analysis to explicitly address health disparities, (4) conducting budget impact analyses to project annual program costs and benefits, and (5) advancing the public health systems and services research agenda.

It is estimated that by 2030 male circumcision will avert at least 500,000 HIV infections in Africa, saving lives and budgets. Read More
