We evaluated the effectiveness of the Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT) in screening for alcohol use disorder (AUD) among 500 men and women seeking HIV testing. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis was used to determine the utility of the AUDIT in discriminating between AUD caseness and non-caseness. For men, a cut-off score of 10 on the AUDIT predicted AUD with 81% sensitivity and 77% specificity. For women, a cut-off score of 7 yielded optimal sensitivity (82%)...

Non-adherence remains the largest cause of treatment failure to antiretroviral therapy (ART). Despite having the largest HIV pandemic, few successful adherence interventions have been conducted in South Africa. Active visualisation is a novel intervention approach that may help effectively communicate the need for consistent adherence to ART. The current study tested an active visualisation intervention in a sample of non-adherent patients. 111 patients failing on first- or second-line ART were ...
