BACKGROUND: Home-based HIV counselling and testing (HBHCT) has the potential to increase HIV testing uptake in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) but data on linkage to HIV care after HBHCT are scarce. We conducted a systematic review of linkage to care after HBHCT in SSA. METHODS: Five databases were searched for studies published between 1(st) January 2000 and 19(th) August 2016 that reported on linkage to care among adults newly identified with HIV infection through HBHCT...

The need for formal care among the elderly population has been increasing due to their greater longevity and the evolution of family structure. We examined the determinants of the use and expenses of formal care among in-home elderly adults in Shanghai. A two-part model based on the data from the Shanghai Long-Term Care Needs Assessment Questionnaire was applied. A total of 8428 participants responded in 2014 and 7100 were followed up in 2015. The determinants of the probability of using formal care were analyzed in the first part of the model and the determinants of formal care expenses were analyzed in the second part...

BACKGROUND: Women's preference to give birth at home is deeply embedded in Ethiopian culture. Many women only go to health facilities if they have complications during birth. Health Extension Workers (HEWs) have been deployed to improve the utilization of maternal health services by bridging the gap between communities and health facilities. This study examined the barriers and facilitators for HEWs as they refer women to mid-level health facilities for birth. METHODS: A qualitative study was conducted in three regions: Afar Region, Southern Nations Nationalities and People's Region and Tigray Region between March to December 2014...

Although antihypertensive therapy reduces cardiovascular risk, individuals who are treated with antihypertensive medication generally have a worse prognosis for cardiovascular disease than untreated people. We recently evaluated the impact of conventional blood pressure level based on two Japanese individual participant databases and found that conventional blood pressure at baseline was not or was weakly associated with cardiovascular events among patients under antihypertensive drug medication. In the general population in Ohasama and the Hypertension Objective Treatment Based on Measurement by Electrical Devices of Blood Pressures study, self-measured home blood pressure significantly predicted cardiovascular outcomes in patients under antihypertensive treatment...

Engaging and retaining persons with HIV in care and treatment is key to reducing new HIV infections in the United States. Understanding the experiences, barriers, and facilitators to engaging and retaining persons in HIV care from the perspective of HIV care providers could help provide insight into how best to achieve this goal. We present qualitative data from 30 HIV care providers in three cities. We identified three facilitators to HIV care: providing a medical home, team-based care and strategies for engaging and retaining patients in HIV care, and focus on provider-patient relationships...

BACKGROUND: Telemedicine is the use of technology to provide and support health care when distance separates the clinical service and the patient. Home-based telemedicine systems involve the use of such technology for medical support and care connecting the patient from the comfort of their homes with the clinician. In order for such a system to be used extensively, it is necessary to understand not only the issues faced by the patients in using them but also the clinician. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to conduct a heuristic evaluation of 4 telemedicine software platforms-Doxy...
