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. A randomized controlled clinical trial was conducted between 2013 and 2016 in Guangxi, China...

An embodied conversational agent can serve as a relational agent and provide information, motivation, and behavioral skills. To evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary efficacy of My Personal Health Guide, a theory-based mobile-delivered embodied conversational agent intervention to improve adherence to antiretroviral therapy in young African American men who have sex with men, we conducted this prospective pilot study using a 3-month pre-post design. Outcome measures included adherence, acceptability, feasibility, pre versus post health literacy, and pre versus post self-efficacy...

Xiushi Yang, Guomei Xia
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...

We surveyed U.S. HIV/AIDS directors or designees in states and non-state regions, regarding factors influencing HIV viral suppression: (1) non-federal prevention funding; (2) contacting newly reported patients and providers, for care linkage and partner services; (3) follow-up of non-received viral load reports, to identify untreated patients; and (4) genotype/phenotype surveillance, to monitor drug resistance. The survey was conducted April-July 2015; 50 (87.7%) participated. Eighty percent of jurisdictions contacted all newly reported patients; 60% contacted all providers...

There are significant psychological, social, and cultural dimensions to the HIV epidemic in the United States, especially among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) communities. Biomedical HIV treatment has been shown to impact these dimensions. However, there is little understanding of the real-world psychosocial and sociocultural effects of the latest biomedical HIV prevention strategy, HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). This study explored the psychosocial and sociocultural dimensions of PrEP use among LGBTQ adults...

Youth experiencing homelessness (YEH) have a high risk of contracting HIV; however, they remain relatively unreached by pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)-based HIV prevention initiatives. We used a cross-sectional mixed-methods study to explore PrEP knowledge, interest, facilitators, and barriers among YEH. Young adults were recruited from agencies serving YEH in Houston, TX (n = 30) and Los Angeles, CA (n = 15) to participate in an electronic self-report survey and a semistructured interview. Survey results indicate that 68...

Addressing stigma remains a pressing HIV priority globally. Young Black men who have sex with men (YBMSM, ages 18-30; N = 474) completed an in-person baseline survey and reported their experiences of externalized stigma (i.e., racial and sexuality discrimination), internalized stigma (i.e., homonegativity), social support, and psychological distress (i.e., anxiety and depression symptoms). We used structural equation modeling to test the association between stigma and psychological distress, and examined whether social support mediated the relationship between stigma and psychological distress...

African immigrant women survivors of cumulative trauma are at high risk for HIV infection. This study aims to identify survivors' perceptions of (a) contextual (i.e., community, and relationship) and individual-level risk and protective factors for HIV among African immigrant women in the United States and (b) areas and strategies of HIV prevention intervention at contextual and individual levels. Qualitative data for this study were collected from African-born women (n = 39) in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC, from February 2017 to March 2018...

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...

HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) has been demonstrated to be a safe and effective method of reducing HIV incidence. Questions remain regarding PrEP's efficacy and outcomes in real-world clinical settings. We conducted a retrospective review to assess PrEP outcomes in an academic clinic setting and focused on retention in care, reasons for discontinuation, and receipt of appropriate preventive care (immunizations, HIV testing, and STI testing). One hundred thirty-four patients were seen between 2010 and 2016 over 309 visits...

We examined adherence, medication-taking practices, and preferences to inform development of a wrist-worn adherence system. Two convenience samples of persons taking antiretroviral therapy and HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis completed a survey. Additional online questions asked about willingness to use a wrist-worn device and reminder and feedback preferences. Among 225 participants, 13% reported adherence < 90%; this was associated with younger age and clinic sample. Compared to pill bottle-using participants, mediset users less commonly reported adherence < 90% (aOR = 0...

Little is known about users' intervention engagement and use patterns within eHealth interventions. We describe these patterns among young men who have sex with men (YMSM) who participated in a brief eHealth intervention designed to increase HIV testing. We merged pilot trial participants' survey data (N = 86) with their paradata (e.g., system data recorded during interaction with the intervention). We created engagement (time spent on components) and use (interaction with features) metrics, and explored whether they differed by participant characteristics...

The Health Belief Model has been useful for studying uptake of HIV prevention behaviors and has had limited application to understanding utilization of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a biomedical strategy to reduce HIV acquisition. We recruited 90 persons undergoing HIV screening and educated them about PrEP. We followed up with 35 participants approximately 3 weeks later and quantitatively assessed PrEP uptake. No participant had initiated PrEP. We conducted in-depth interviews with 15 participants to explore situational factors impacting this decision...

Clinician-delivered HIV prevention interventions are common and often effective but have small reach, particularly in remote, rural, or sparsely populated areas. Electronic health (eHealth) interventions may be an efficient alternative to providing HIV prevention to geographically dispersed or traditionally hard-to-reach populations, though eHealth interventions tend to have high start-up costs. We present cost data from a video-based eHealth intervention, Sex Positive!, among 1,208 U.S. gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men living with HIV...

Men who have sex with men (MSM) often create sexual agreements with their partners, but little is known about agreements with serious versus causal partners. We used data from 472 young MSM to examine agreements with one's most recent partner, individual differences across types of partnerships and agreements, and predictors of condomless anal sex (CAS). Two-thirds of participants did not have agreements. Monogamous agreements were most common among those who were seriously dating their partner, but also present among those who were casually dating their partner and those who were not dating their partner...

The Philippines has a rapidly growing HIV epidemic, with men who have sex with men (MSM) accounting for a majority of known cases. Currently, there is little understanding about MSM's experiences of HIV-related stigma in the Philippines and how they influence behavior and quality of life. Twenty-one interviews with MSM living with HIV and with communitybased organization workers were conducted in Manila from June to August 2017. MSM participants were affected by the intersection of HIV-related stigma and stigma toward homosexuality that are rooted in connotations of morality, "dirtiness," and sin...

HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is being adopted by members of key populations, such as gay and bisexual men (GBM). Since adherence to a daily PrEP regimen ensures a maximum protection, it is critical to understand GBM's behavioral responses to having missed PrEP doses. We report on qualitative interviews with GBM taking PrEP. We identified three behavioral responses: (1) 59% continued with their next scheduled dose; (2) 49% described "making up" for a missed dose by taking medication as soon as possible; and (3) 11% reported "doubling" the next PrEP dose...

This study developed a computer-based program to teach HIV prevention behaviors and raise awareness of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) among individuals at risk for HIV. The program was divided into modules containing educational material and multiple-choice questions. Participants received immediate feedback for responses and incentives for correct responses to multiple-choice questions. Participants trained on each module until they met speed and accuracy criteria. The modules were divided into: Course 1 (HIV), Course 2 (PrEP), and Course 3 (HIV risk behaviors)...

Methamphetamine use is associated with increased HIV/STI infection among men who have sex with men (MSM). From March 2014 through January 2016, 286 methamphetamine-using MSM enrolled in a study to reduce methamphetamine use and sexual risk behaviors. Participants were tested for HIV/STIs at baseline and every 3 months for 9 months. At baseline, 115 participants (40.2%) were HIV-positive; three participants seroconverted (incidence = 2.6/100 person-years). Baseline testing diagnosed 77 STI cases (21 chlamydia, 18 gonorrhea, 38 syphilis); by 9-month follow-up, 71 incident STIs were diagnosed (22 chlamydia, 24 gonorrhea, 25 syphilis); 78% occurred among HIV-positive participants...
