Generating CHARISMA: Development of an Intervention to Help Women Build Agency and Safety in Their Relationships While Using PrEP for HIV Prevention.

AIDS Educ Prev 2019 10;31(5):433-451

Women's Global Health Imperative, RTI International, San Francisco, California.

This article describes the development of the Community Health clinic model for Agency in Relationships and Safer Microbicide Adherence intervention (CHARISMA), an intervention designed to address the ways in which gender norms and power differentials within relationships affect women's ability to safely and consistently use HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). CHARISMA development involved three main activities: (1) a literature review to identify appropriate evidence-based relationship dynamic scales and interventions; (2) the analysis of primary and secondary data collected from completed PrEP studies, surveys and cognitive interviews with PrEP-experienced and naïve women, and in-depth interviews with former vaginal ring trial participants and male partners; and (3) the conduct of workshops to test and refine key intervention activities prior to pilot testing. These steps are described along with the final clinic and community-based intervention, which was tested for feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary effectiveness in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Collective Coping Strategies for HIV-Related Challenges Among Men Who Have Sex With Men in Manila, Philippines.

AIDS Educ Prev 2019 10;31(5):479-490

Philippine Health Initiative for Research, Service, and Training, Brown University School of Public Health, Providence, Rhode Island.

Contextual factors, such as cultures of collectivism versus individualism, shape HIV coping strategies; despite this, little research regarding collective coping strategies applied to HIV exists. This may be important for the growing HIV epidemic in the Philippines, which has a collectivistic culture and where men who have sex with men (MSM) account for a majority of the cases. Fifteen semistructured, in-depth interviews with HIV-positive MSM and 6 interviews with community-based organization workers were conducted between June and August 2017. Read More

Interprofessional Collaboration and On-the-Job Training Improve Access to HIV Testing, HIV Primary Care, and Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP).

AIDS Educ Prev 2018 12;30(6):474-489

Columbia University Medical Center.

The HIV Continuum of Care is a global priority, yet vulnerable patients face access/retention challenges. Research is missing on the role social and public health service providers can play to help these patients. Using structural equation modeling, we examined the effects of interprofessional collaboration (IPC) and on-the-job training on the frequency of linkages to HIV testing, HIV primary care, and on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) psychoeducation.

"The Time Has Arrived": Perceptions of Behavioral Adjustments in the Context of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Availability Among Adolescents in South Africa.

AIDS Educ Prev 2018 12;30(6):463-473

Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences, Brown University School of Public Health.

Antiretroviral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) holds enormous potential to reduce HIV acquisition in key populations globally. We conducted an exploratory PrEP acceptability study using qualitative methodology among adolescents and service providers in the Western Cape Province of South Africa to inform future PrEP implementation challenges in South Africa and other high-prevalence African countries. Semistructured focus groups and in-depth individual interviews were conducted among 57 adolescents 16-17 years of age, living with and without HIV, and 25 clinical service providers. Read More

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

AIDS Educ Prev 2019 04;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

I Don't Want the Tray to Tip: Experiences of Peer Evaluators in a Multisite HIV Retention in Care Study.

AIDS Educ Prev 2019 04;31(2):179-192

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, Maryland.

Numerous studies demonstrate the efficacy of peer-delivered interventions to improve HIV prevention and care outcomes, yet few explore the role of peers in evaluation and data collection. We conducted qualitative interviews with providers in a multisite HIV Retention in Care initiative to explore peers' evaluation roles, challenges, and strategies for success. We found peers' responsibilities included data collection, client assessments, and data entry. 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 04;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

Development of a Social Network-Based Intervention to Overcome Multilevel Barriers to ART Adherence Among Adolescents in Brazil.

AIDS Educ Prev 2019 04;31(2):111-126

Brown University School of Public Health, Providence, Rhode Island.

Brazil's comprehensive HIV treatment program does not specifically address ART adherence challenges for adolescents-a group accounting for the largest number of incident HIV infections in Brazil. We conducted three focus groups with 24 adolescents (age 15-24) living with HIV in Rio de Janeiro, separately for cisgender men who have sex with men, heterosexual-identified cisgender men and women, and transgender women of any sexual orientation, and key informant interviews (n = 7) with infectious disease specialists and HIV/AIDS service organization staff. Content analysis identified socioecological barriers and facilitators to adherence, including individual (e. Read More

Acceptability of HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and Opinions on PrEP Service Delivery Among Men Who Have Sex With Men in Singapore: A Qualitative Study.

AIDS Educ Prev 2019 04;31(2):152-162

National Centre for Infectious Diseases, Singapore.

PrEP is effective in preventing HIV transmission among at-risk HIV-negative MSM. A qualitative descriptive study with five focus group discussions (N = 33) involving a purposively recruited sample of Singaporean MSM was conducted from August 2016 to April 2017 to understand local perspectives on potential barriers and motivators to the adoption of PrEP, prior to the implementation of PrEP services in Singapore. Knowledge of PrEP was high, and many viewed PrEP as an attractive alternative to condoms for HIV prevention. 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 02;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 02;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.
