Cultural adaptation of Quality Of Care Through The Patient's Eyes -QUOTE-HIV.

CONCLUSION: the Brazilian version of QUOTE-HIV has been adapted and validated in relation to its content. However, this is a study that precedes the process of evaluating the psychometric properties of the instrument, the results of which will be presented in a later publication.

AbstractAmong persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV), approximately two-thirds report moderate to severe pain. Chronic pain can negatively affect PLHIVs ’ health behaviors and outcomes by interfering with their reciprocity (mutual exchange) of support in their caregiving relationships, which has been found to be associated with PLHIVs’ antiretroviral adherence and viral suppression. Data were longitudinal (baseline, 6- and 12-month follow-up) fr om 383 PLHIV who were formerly or currently using drugs. Utilizing a longitudinal lagged fixed effects structural equation model, we found that never having pain in the p...

In this study, PA and indices of metabolic health among twenty men living with HIV and twenty age matched HIV-negative men were measured. PA was measured using Actigraph accelerometers. Components of the metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance were measured using routine laboratory methods. Men living with HIV were significantly more physically active than HIV-negative men, and were reaching public PA guidelines. Significant inverse correlations between moderate PA and both insulin resistance ( ρ −0.847; p

AbstractInterventions that promote HIV prevention and reduce sexual risk-taking among men who have sex with men (MSM) are needed. Decisions surrounding sexual behavior and prevention are in part shaped by how individuals gauge HIV risk, which may be influenced by perceptions of local HIV prevalence. Using an online sample of self-reported HIV-negative adult MSM (n  = 1477, mean age = 45) recruited in 2015, we examine associations between accuracy of perceived local HIV prevalence and self-reported condomless anal sex (CAS) and HIV testing. Men who perceived their local HIV prevalence to be higher than a...

This study uses longitudinal qualitative methods to examine how gay and bisexual men perceive sexual risk across both a variety of partners and across time. Over ten weeks, participants completed three quantitative personal relationship diaries (PRD) describing sexual encounters during that time period. Participants then completed a timeline-based individual in-depth interview to unpack the PRD data. Participants used multiple factors to determine their own sexual risk (e.g., type of sex, partner concurrency, emotional connections), which often resulted in inconsistencies in defining sexual risk and determining the level o...

AbstractSafer conception interventions reduce HIV incidence while supporting the reproductive goals of people living with or affected by HIV. We developed a consensus statement to address demand, summarize science, identify information gaps, outline research and policy priorities, and advocate for safer conception services. This statement emerged from a process incorporating consultation from meetings, literature, and key stakeholders. Three co-authors developed an outline which was discussed and modified with co-authors, working group members, and additional clinical, policy, and community experts in safer conception, HIV...
