As people age with HIV, cognitive problems may become more prevalent and severe, but lifestyle behaviors (i.e., physical activity) have been shown to protect brain health and cognition. We examined the perceptions that older adults living with HIV have about protecting and improving brain health and cognition through lifestyle behaviors. Qualitative data were analyzed from four focus groups (N = 30) of African Americans and Caucasians living with HIV and at least 50 years of age. An open-coding scheme using conventional content analysis was employed...

Men who have sex with men (MSM) in Ghana are at an increased risk of contracting HIV. Understanding the social networks of MSM may support the development of HIV prevention strategies for this unique population. This article explores the structure and function of the social networks of MSM from 22 focus groups drawn from two urban and one rural setting in Ghana. Gaining insights into the characteristics of these networks will allow health care providers to design HIV prevention efforts and increase access to these programs...

Approximately 10-15% of persons living with HIV (PLWH) have a comorbid diagnosis of diabetes mellitus (DM). Both of these long-term chronic conditions are associated with high rates of symptom burden. The purpose of our study was to describe symptom patterns for PLWH with DM (PLWH+DM) using a large secondary dataset. The prevalence, burden, and bothersomeness of symptoms reported by patients in routine clinic visits during 2015 were assessed using the 20-item HIV Symptom Index. Principal component analysis was used to identify symptom clusters...

Only 80% of people living with HIV (PLWH) in the United States are linked to care, 40% are engaged in care, and 30% have achieved viral load suppression. We addressed linkage to care with a pilot program of a statewide referral call center to connect PLWH and their non-HIV specialty providers to HIV care. Callers received tailored referrals from nurses trained to work in an existing call center, using an electronic assessment tool and a comprehensive HIV provider list. Of 122 calls, 85% were from PLWH and 15% from providers calling about a patient...

Physical activity (PA) may improve physical and mental health in people living with HIV (PLWH). However, the associations between PA participation and physical and mental health problems of PLWH in urban settings remain largely unknown. Our objective was to determine the relationships between PA and physical and mental health in urban-dwelling PLWH. There were 289 adult PLWH who responded to an electronic survey including questions on PA and current physical and mental health. The associations between physical and mental health and PA were investigated using linear and logistic regression...

Nearly 50% of adult persons living with HIV (PLWH) experience HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND), which is associated with deteriorating brain health and cognitive functioning. Multimodal interventions that simultaneously improve physical activity, nutrition, and sleep hygiene may be of value for adult PLWH, especially as they age and become vulnerable to HAND. We used four focus groups of PLWH (N = 30; ages ≥ 50 years) to solicit feedback about Cognitive Prescriptions, a multimodal cognitive intervention...

We explored workplace experiences of 10 health care providers with HIV in the Netherlands. We used semi-structured interviews to discuss motivations for disclosure and concealment, reactions to disclosures, the impact of reactions, and coping with negative reactions. Reasons for disclosure were wanting to share the secret, expecting positive responses, observing positive reactions to others, wanting to prevent negative reactions, and being advised to disclose. Reasons for concealment included fearing negative reactions, observing negative reactions, previous negative experiences, having been advised to conceal, and considering disclosure unnecessary...

The Clinician Scholars Program at the Midwest AIDS Training and Education Center strengthens the workforce by increasing knowledge and skills related to HIV prevention and care. The 1-year individualized training program for minority-serving clinicians includes intensive mentoring and networking. Qualitative exit interviews (N = 50) conducted over 4 years demonstrate the effectiveness of the training, including changes at the individual and systems levels. Findings show that almost all graduates reported improvements in knowledge, two-thirds reported changes in empathic capacity and cultural competence, and nearly three-quarters reported changes in clinical practice...

Identifying why girls participate in safe and risky sexual behaviors is key to developing successful intervention strategies. This study identified motivations for sex in 738 girls enrolled in the Health Improvement Project for Teens (HIPTeens) randomized controlled trial and analyzed differences in sex motives among at-risk subgroups. Sexually active girls, ages 15-19 years, were recruited from urban community-based settings. Baseline data were collected via audio computer-assisted self-interview surveys including a modified Sex Motives Scale based on six domains (intimacy, enhancement, self-affirmation, coping, peer pressure, and partner approval), assessing drivers of both protective and risk-promoting motivations...

Social support usually decreases following HIV diagnosis, and decreased support is related to worsening mental health. We investigated the evolution of social support after HIV diagnosis and its relationship to anxiety, depression, and resilience, and sought to develop a social support prediction model. There were 119 newly diagnosed Spanish speakers who participated in this longitudinal study, completing measures of social support, internalized stigma, disclosure concerns, degree of disclosure, coping, anxiety, depression, and resilience...

Despite the high rates of HIV infections in Tanzania, significant gaps in the depth and comprehensiveness of HIV knowledge persist among the population in Tanzania. The aim of our study was to explore nurses' experiences of providing information about HIV prevention in Tanzania. Semi-structured interviews with open-ended questions were conducted with eight nurses in health care centers. The interviews were transcribed and analyzed using qualitative content analysis as described by Burnard. The results showed that the nurses carried out the preventive HIV work by giving information, offering counseling, and teaching precautions...

Research has shown that pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is effective for preventing HIV infection. We developed the Targeted PrEP Implementation Program (TPIP), an 18-month project that involved five statewide agencies, to assess the extent to which PrEP could be implemented in "real world" clinical settings. The target population was men who have sex with men at high risk for HIV infection. Data were collected from a variety of sources. Implementing PrEP statewide required facilitating provider capacity, developing resources, and identifying/addressing potential barriers...
