President's Message: A Year in Review
It is hard to believe that my first year as president has come to a close. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the process of becoming president of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC), our current bylaws state that the president must have served previously as president-elect (which is a 2-year term). In order to be president-elect, one has to have served at least 1  year on the national board of directors. For me, my journey toward ANAC Presidency began in 2011 when I was elected to serve as a director-at-large. (Source: Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care)

The AIDS Pandemic: Searching for a  Global Response
Michael Merson, the second Director of the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Program on AIDS, and co-author Stephen Inrig have described, in gripping detail, the personal antagonisms, interpersonal wrangling, and bureaucratic intrigue that explained the failure of the first global response to the HIV epidemic (Merson& Inrig, 2018). However, I believe that the decision of WHO, Western researchers, and the media to ignore the role of reuse of contaminated syringes and needles in health care settings and to instead emphasize African people's sex with multiple partners was more critical in the explosion of HIV in Afri...

Integration of Anal Dysplasia Screening into the Primary Care of Persons Living with HIV
Anal dysplasia can lead to anal cancer, which affects persons living with HIV (PLWH) more than people in the general population. Screening for anal dysplasia is recommended to detect anal cancer at an early stage. The aim of our process improvement project was to improve compliance and consistency, implementing anal dysplasia screening for PLWH receiving care at a Ryan White facility covering 18 counties in western North Carolina. There were 291 PLWH screened for anal dysplasia during the 9-month data-gathering period. (Source: Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care)

Shaping the Patient-Centered Medical Home to the Needs of HIV Safety Net Patients: The Impact of Stigma and the Need for Trust
The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a promising model for increasing the efficiency and quality of HIV care. We evaluated the implementation of PCMH-related demonstration projects in HIV care settings serving safety net populations. We conducted 113 qualitative interviews with key informants and patients to understand which PCMH components were perceived as best meeting patient medical and support service needs. Our results demonstrate the value and limitations of the PCMH, as currently conceived, for HIV care settings. (Source: Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care)

Support for PrEP among New Jersey health care workers
We used an online survey of health care workers in New Jersey to assess awareness, perceptions, and support of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). We sampled respondents from diverse health care worker occupations, in HIV and non-HIV care settings. Of174 participants, awareness of PrEP was high at 91% (n=122), as was support for its use by members of at-risk groups (74%). Occupation was the only independent variable with significant variation in support of PrEP, with 41% of disease intervention specialists/health educators supporting PrEP completely, compared to93%of nurses.

Preventing HIV Infection in High-Risk Adolescents Using Preexposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)
Preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) has emerged as a major tool in the prevention of HIV infection. Appropriate use of once-daily emtricitabine 200  mg and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg (Truvada®; Gilead, Foster City, CA) in combination with safer sex activities significantly reduces the risk of HIV infection. Trials initially supported efficacy of PrEP in adults, prompting its approval for adult use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administ ration (FDA) in July 2012 (Gilead, 2018). Due to growing data suggesting PrEP as beneficial in preventing HIV in high-risk adolescents, the FDA approved it for prevention of H...

Factors that Influence Sexual and Reproductive Health Information Offered to Adolescents with Perinatally-Acquired HIV: An Ecological Analysis of Provider Perspectives
The goal of our project was to examine health and social service provider views of factors that influence the nature and timing of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) information shared with adolescents with perinatally-acquired HIV (PHIV). Health care (n=6) and social service (n=7) providers (11.6 mean years caring for adolescents with PHIV) completed audiorecorded interviews which were transcribed, and coded for emerging themes. Analyses revealed multiple levels of influence best understood in the context of the ecological model. (Source: Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care)

Prescribing Opioids as an Incentive to  Retain Patients in Medical Care: A Qualitative Investigation into Clinician Awareness and Perceptions
HIV treatment retention remains a significant public health concern. Our qualitative analysis used emergent data from a larger HIV treatment study to explore clinician perspectives on prescribing opioids to incentivize retention in HIV care. Data from individual interviews with 29 HIV and substance use clinicians were analyzed using thematic analysis. Prescribing opioids as a retention strategy emerged as a theme. Nine of 11 HIV clinicians reported prior knowledge of this practice; only one of 12 substance use clinicians indicated prior knowledge. (Source: Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care)

Nurses ’ knowledge of tuberculosis, HIV, and integrated HIV/TB care policies in rural Western Cape, South Africa
HIV and tuberculosis (TB) co-infection remain the leading causes of mortality in many developing countries. Several policies for their prevention and management exist; however, progress to meet the World Health Organization ’s indicators is slow. As nurses in rural areas are the main health care professionals responsible for the implementation of policies, questions arose about nursing knowledge regarding TB and HIV policies. A concurrent mixed method research approach was used to investigate this issue in a rural ar ea of the Western Cape in South African. (Source: Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care)

Young Hispanic women have been particularly affected by HIV. For this reason, we analyzed the influence of cognitive factors, dispositional variables, and gender culture on the HIV risks of 2 groups of Hispanic women. Young Argentinian and Spanish women (N = 342) completed the AIDS Prevention Questionnaire, the Spanish version of the Sexual Compulsivity Scale, and the Spanish version of the Sexual Sensation Seeking Scale in order to evaluate knowledge of HIV transmission, HIV, and condom use; self-efficacy; safe-sex intention and safe sex; as well as Sexual Sensation Seeking and Sexual Compulsivity traits.

HIV testing and associated factors among men who have sex with men in Changsha, China
Promoting HIV testing is an important strategy to end the HIV epidemic. HIV incidence among men who have sex with men (MSM) has increased rapidly in China in recent years, but HIV testing rates are still low. Our cross-sectional study investigated HIV testing rates and analyzed associated factors in 565 MSM in Changsha between April and December 2014. In the previous year 37.7% of participants had not been tested, 38.2% had had 1 test, and 24.1% had had 2 or more tests. Those who initiated sexual debut at an older age, had known someone infected with HIV, or been diagnosed with a sexually transmitted illness (STI) were mor...

Earlier this year the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC) joined 96 other organizations to sign a letter written by the American Academy of Nursing urging congressional leaders to develop a bipartisan National Commission on Mass Shootings (American Academy of Nursing, 2018). The letter urged government leaders to address the issue of access and availability of guns, and strengthen the screening process for individuals who wished to obtain weapons. Gun violence is a public health issue, with more than 60,000 gun-related injuries or deaths occurring in the United States last year (Gun Violence Archive, 2018). (Source: ...

Patient Responses on Quality of Care and Satisfaction with Staff After Integrated HIV Care in South African Primary Health Care Clinics
HIV care integrated into primary health care (PHC) encourages reorganized service delivery but could increase workload. In 2012-2013, we surveyed 910 patients and caregivers at two time points after integration in four clinics in Free State, South Africa. Likert surveys measured quality of care (QoC) and satisfaction with staff (SwS). QoC scores were lower for females, those older than 56  years, those visiting clinics every 3 months, and child health participants. Regression estimates showed QoC scores higher for ages 36-45 versus 18-25 years, and lower for those attending clinics for more than 10 year...

Few international studies document the concerns of women living with HIV (WLWH) who were infected by their intravenous drug using husbands. Our content analysis described the concerns of this population by analyzing 12 interviews with WLWH. Three main concerns were discussed by the women: dealing with anger and being a dedicated wife, going home to one ’s parents as the only place to go, and being strong and staying alive for the children. Dealing with their own emotional responses to the HIV diagnosis, lacking financial resources after the husband’s death, and remaining focused on staying healthy were major is...
