Network factors have been proposed as potential drivers of racial disparities in HIV among Black and Latino men who have sex with men (MSM). This review aimed to synthesize the extant literature on networks and racial disparities in HIV among MSM and identify potential directions for future research. We searched databases for peer-reviewed articles published between January 1, 2008 and July 1, 2018. Articles were included if the sample was comprised primarily of racial/ethnic minority MSM and me...

Women are disproportionately at risk of acquiring HIV in East and Southern Africa, despite global declines in incidence. Female-initiated HIV prevention methods, like the dapivirine vaginal ring, are needed to end the HIV epidemic. In-depth interviews and focus groups retrospectively explored peer influence on acceptability of and adherence to the ring during the ASPIRE trial, a phase III placebo-controlled trial. Results were analyzed using an inductive analytic approach. Study participants (pe...

Data from repeated, national behavioural HIV surveillance was used to identify similarities and differences between young gay and bisexual men (YGBM) aged 16–24 (n = 1608) and older GBM aged 25–49 (n = 6266), in order to quantify risks and identify gaps in HIV prevention. Trend analyses from 2014 to 2018 are also reported. While there were similar rates of condomless anal intercourse with casual partners in both age groups, YGBM had lower rates of HIV testing and PrEP use but also fewer male par...

This analysis examines how sex behaviors are influenced by a sex partner’s network bridging position and the residential proximity between the two. The study sample consisted of 437 young black men who have sex with men (YBMSM) in Chicago and their sex partners (2013–2014). Dyadic analyses that clustered on individuals using generalized estimating equations (n = 1095 relationships) were conducted to assess the associations between different HIV-related sexual behaviors and the network position o...

Stigma poses considerable challenges to the mental health of people living with HIV who use drugs (PLHWUD). In this study, we explored factors related to different types of stigma (perceived and internalized) attached to layered stigmatizing characters (HIV and drug use) and their mental health influences on PLHWUD. The study used baseline data of an ongoing randomized controlled trial among 241 PLHWUD recruited between March and December 2018 in Vietnam. A structural equation model was used to ...

Little is known about clinical presentation and cascade of care among patients living with HIV (PLWH) in Beirut, Lebanon. The study aims to examine the reasons for HIV testing and to evaluate the clinical characteristics of, predictors of advanced HIV stage at presentation in, and rates of ART initiation, retention in care, and viral load suppression among PLWH in Lebanon. We conducted a retrospective study of PLWH presenting to a tertiary-care centre-affiliated outpatient clinic from 2008 to 20...

Stimulant abuse is a major contributor to HIV transmission in the United States, yet HIV prevalence among persons who use illicit stimulants remains unknown. We implemented respondent driven sampling (RDS) to estimate the prevalence of HIV infection in this high-risk population. We also examined RDS-adjusted rates of risk behaviors among HIV-positive and HIV-negative participants. Recruited from seven seeds, our sample of 387 participants was 46% female, 89% African American, and 45.94 years old...
