HIV testing and entry to care among trans women in Indiana
Trans women in the United States are disproportionately affected by HIV infection. To improve HIV services for this population, more information is needed about their experiences in early stages of the HIV Care Continuum. Trans women in states such as Indiana, which has moderate HIV incidence but little public health investment in HIV prevention and treatment, experience special challenges. Our qualitative descriptive study describes the circumstances influencing HIV testing and entry to care by 18 trans women living with HIV in Central Indiana.

Depression, Self-Esteem, and Childhood Abuse Among Hispanic Men Residing in the U.S. –Mexico Border Region
Hispanics experience health disparities in mental health and HIV infection when compared to non-Hispanic Whites, which may be related to childhood abuse. The purpose of our cross-sectional study was to examine the relationship between childhood abuse and depressive symptoms in a sample of Hispanic men (N  = 103) living in a metropolitan U.S.–Mexico border area. Secondarily, we examined the role of self-esteem in mediating this relationship, and the moderating role of sexual orientation. Gay/bisexual men (n = 53) were more likely to report childhood abuse than heterosexual (n = 50) counte...

Trauma-informed decision-making among providers and victims of intimate partner violence during HIV testing: A qualitative study
We explored the process of implementing an HIV testing program at an intimate partner violence (IPV) service agency from the client and provider perspectives. A qualitative descriptive approach was used wherein semi-structured interviews were conducted with 19 key informants (i.e., women with a history of IPV, HIV service providers, IPV service providers). Interviews focused on facilitators and barriers to HIV testing implementation, the decision-making process during HIV testing, and support needs.

Minority College Students' HPV Knowledge, Awareness, and Vaccination History
The genital human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) affecting males and females in the United States (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2017a). It is estimated that 79 million individuals are infected with HPV, and 14 million Americans become newly infected with HPV each year (CDC, 2016). HPV can be contracted through vaginal, anal, or oral intercourse, as well as by skin-to-skin contact, and can cause cervical, vaginal, vulvar, anal, and oral cancers.

“It Was a Learning Experience”: Lessons Learned From Young African American Men and Women's Sexual Debut
An estimated 38,356 adolescents and young adults ages 13 to 24  years are living with HIV infection in the United States (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2017). A disproportionate number of these infections are among young African American men and women. Approximately 59% of males and 64% of females ages 13 to 24 living with HIV infection are African American (CDC, 2017). African Americans comprise more than half (55%) of new HIV diagnoses among youth (CDC, 2017). Young African American men and women are also greatly burdened by sexually transmitted infections (STI) such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, w...

My Journey as an AIDS Nurse
Until the HIV epidemic, I gathered history from textbooks, usually as a list of boring “facts” that had to be memorized for a test. I learned about current events from television and radio news programs or newspapers and news magazines, often as short snippets about happenings far removed from my personal space. I did not read historical nonfiction, which I perceived to be tedious beyond imagination. I ignored the value of historical lessons that could be gleaned from theater, movies, fiction, and art, enjoying the music or picture or story without bothering to dive into the times and places they portrayed. (So...

Intent to Use Preexposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), HIV Risk Behaviors, and Self-Report Neurocognitive Symptoms by High-Risk Drug Users: A Mediation Analysis
Neurocognitive impairment (NCI) and HIV risk are significant correlates of intent to use preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP). The extent to which similar outcomes could occur when these factors operate together, particularly for people who use drugs (PWUD), remains an important unanswered question. We therefore sought evidence that HIV risk behavior mediated the relationship between NCI and intent to use PrEP in high-risk PWUD in treatment. HIV-uninfected, methadone-maintained people who reported HIV-risk behaviors were enrolled (n  = 400). (Source: Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care)

Multimorbidity with HIV: Views of Community-Based People Living with HIV and Other Chronic Conditions
People living with HIV (PLWH) experience an increase in chronic conditions with aging, but little is known about experiences of living with multimorbidity with HIV. Because early palliative care services may improve well-being for individuals with multimorbidity, we planned to test an intervention to provide these services to community-dwelling PLWH with other chronic conditions. To tailor our intervention to the target population, we conducted 4 focus groups (n = 22) that elicited health-related needs, experiences, and views regarding palliative and other health services.

“I Can't Go Out”: Mobility Obstacles to Women's Access to HIV Treatment in KPK, Pakistan
We examined the role of outside mobility constraints as barriers to HIV treatment for Pakistani women living with HIV (WLWH) whose husbands were permanently living in other cities. We focused on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), which adheres to conservative social and cultural values for female mobility. Open-ended interviews were conducted with 21 WLWH. We found that women's mobility outside the home was shaped by the system of parda (seclusion) and that a husband's lack of support by not being present for clinical appointments, distance to the HIV clinic, and ages of children emerged as crucial contributors to women's outside m...

Continuing links between Substance use and HIV Highlight the Importance of Nursing Roles
Links between HIV and substance use were identified early in the U.S. HIV epidemic. People who use drugs are at risk of HIV infection through shared injection equipment and risky sexual behaviors. In addition, substance use has negative health consequences for people living with HIV. The prescription opioid misuse epidemic, linked to injection drug use, hepatitis C infection, and HIV, poses a new threat to declining HIV rates. We reviewed evidence-based interventions that decrease HIV risk in people who use drugs (needle/syringe programs, medication-assisted treatment, engagement in HIV care, and PrEP/PEP).

HIV stigma, retention in care, and adherence among older Black women living with HIV
Stigma is recognized as a barrier to the prevention, care, and treatment of HIV, including engagement in the HIV care continuum. HIV stigma in older Black women may be compounded by pre-existing social inequities based on gender, age, and race. Using semi-structured interviews and survey questionnaires, we explore experiences of HIV stigma, retention in care, and antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence in 35 older Black women with HIV from Prince George ’s County, Maryland.

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) improves the health and longevity of people living with HIV infection (PLWH) and also prevents transmission of the virus. Yet, lack of adherence to ART regimens has been a persistent problem, even with simpler regimens. Guidelines that deal with ART adherence are based almost solely on quantitative studies; this focus ignores the context and complexity of patients' lives.

HIV task sharing between nurses and physicians in Nigeria: Examining the correlates of nurse self-efficacy and job satisfaction
A global shortfall of 12.9 million health care workers has been predicted to occur in the next 2 decades. Task sharing between physicians and nurses, a method used to help compensate for provider shortages, was shown to improve access to antiretroviral therapy in Africa, but led to nurses performing beyond their scopes of practice. We surveyed 508 nurses in task-shifted roles in Nigeria. Respondents (n = 399) provided information on age, years in practice, gender, registration status, employment site, and access to task-sharing training and mentoring.
