Predictors and consequences of HIV status disclosure to adolescents living with HIV in Eastern Cape, South Africa: a prospective cohort study
CONCLUSIONS: Awareness of HIV-positive status was not associated with higher rates of mental health symptoms, or lower rates of viral suppression among adolescents. Disclosure was not associated with worse mental health. These findings support the recommendation for timely disclosure to APHIV; however, adherence support post-disclosure is important.PMID:35543100 | DOI:10.1002/jia2.25910 (Source: Journal of the International AIDS Society)

CONCLUSIONS: Half of AGYW preferred oral PrEP, uptake and adherence were low, uptake was associated with sexual behavioural risk and oral PrEP preference. Development of alternative biomedical products should be expedited to meet end-user preferences and, community delivery promoted during restricted movement.PMID:35543110 | DOI:10.1002/jia2.25909 (Source: Journal of the International AIDS Society)

Two years after lockdown: reviewing the effects of COVID-19 on health services and support for adolescents living with HIV in South Africa
CONCLUSIONS: Adolescent HIV care in South Africa is often overlooked; however, ART adherence among ALHIV in South Africa is particularly susceptible to the consequences of a world transformed by COVID-19. The current structures in place to support HIV testing, ART initiation and adherence have been reshaped by disruptions to health structures, new barriers to access health services and the limited available education and psychosocial support systems. Reflecting on these limitations can drive considerations for minimizing these barriers and retaining ALHIV in HIV care.PMID:35475319 | PMC:PMC9042673 | DOI:10.1002/jia2.25904 ...
