Abstract: HIV transmission is most likely to occur during the first few months after infection, yet few cases are identified during this period.
Background: We aim to identify optimal strategies for deploying pre-exposure prophylaxis among men who have sex with men (MSM) in the United States and Peru to maximize population-level effectiveness in an efficient manner.
Objective: Regular HIV RNA testing for all HIV-positive patients on antiretroviral therapy (ART) is expensive and has low yield since most tests are undetectable.
Background: We previously published systematic reviews of retention in care after antiretroviral therapy initiation among general adult populations in sub-Saharan Africa.
Objective: We examine the extent to which Ugandans accurately know their HIV status and that of their partners.
Background: Coital dilution, the reduction in the coital frequency per partner when an additional ongoing partner is added, may reduce the transmission potential of partnership concurrency for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
Background: HIV risk is influenced by multiple factors including the behaviors and characteristics of sexual partners.
Background: In 2007, Swaziland initiated a hub-and-spoke model for decentralizing antiretroviral therapy (ART) access.
Background: Poorly controlled HIV infection is associated with increased risk for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Objectives: Reports showed that Saudi Arabia has low prevalence of HIV/AIDS despite increasing influx of foreign nationals from countries with high risk of HIV.
Background: Measures of immune outcomes in youth who initiate combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) early in HIV infection are limited.
Background: Dyslipidemia is highly prevalent among patients with HIV infection and contributes to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Objective: To assess the role of sexual relationships on levels and patterns of adherence to medication for pre-exposure prophylaxis against HIV.
