Hepatitis C (HCV) can only be eradicated if annual rates of cure (SVR) are consistently and significantly higher than new HCV infections, across many countries.
Resource
Despite the enormous expansion of HIV testing services (HTS), an estimated 40% of people with HIV infection remain undiagnosed. To enhance the efficiency of HTS, new approaches are needed.
Resource
Alcohol use is associated with increased HIV-risk behaviors, including unprotected sex and number of sex partners.
Resource
The AIDSFree HIV Testing Services (HTS) Guidance Database has been updated with new guidelines from many PEPFAR priority countries.
Resource
This multi-country trial examined outcomes among treatment-naïve adults and children with CD4 counts below 100 who were given enhanced antimicrobial prophylaxis including trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, isoniazid-pyridoxine, fluconazole, azithromyc
Resource
Evidence shows that HIV prevalence among young women in sub-Saharan Africa increases almost five-fold between ages 15 and 24, with almost a quarter of young women infected by their early-to mid-20s.
Resource
The objective of this study was to characterize cervicovaginal (CV) mucosal factors modulating susceptibility to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) acquisition in healthy premenopausal (PRE) and postmenopausal (POST) women before and after treatme
Resource
The following information provides guidance to health care providers attending to the medical needs of adults and children with HIV displaced from disaster areas who have not yet secured HIV care in the areas where they have relocated.
Resource
With more than 18 million HIV-infected individuals having initiated antiretroviral therapy (ART) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) by the end of 2016, ensuring effective HIV care and treatment services is a global public health priority.
Resource
This study aimed to quantify the contribution of specific sexual partner age groups to the risk of HIV acquisition in men and women in a hyperendemic region of South Africa an
Resource
Couples' HIV testing and counselling (CHTC) is associated with greater engagement with HIV prevention and care than individual testing and is cost-effective, but uptake remains suboptimal.
Resource
HIV and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) infections cause a substantial global disease burden and are epidemiologically correlated.
Resource
Alcohol use and depression negatively impact adherence, retention in care, and HIV progression, and people living with HIV (PLWH) have disproportionately higher depression rates.
Resource
A new set of resources has been developed by AIDSFree to help health care providers and social welfare officers deliver effective gender-based violence (GBV) and violence against children (VAC) prevention and response services.
Resource
Increasing populations of children who are HIV-exposed but uninfected will face the challenge of disclosure of parental HIV infection status.
Resource
Hepatitis B virus (HBV)–HIV coinfections are becoming common with information on HBV genetic diversity and drug resistance still remaining elusive.
Resource
Couples' HIV testing and counselling (CHTC) is a well-tested, feasible, and acceptable intervention and reduces HIV transmission through serostatus-based counselling that increases condom use among discordant couples (many of whom did not know tha
Resource
Rapid diagnostic tests (RDT) for HIV infection have high sensitivity and specificity, but in the setting of longstanding antiretroviral therapy (ART), can give false results that can lead to misinterpretation, confusion and inadequate management.
Resource
Rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) are the primary diagnostic tools for HIV used in resource-constrained settings.
Resource
Population-wide HIV testing services (HTSs) must be delivered in order to achieve universal antiretroviral treatment (ART) coverage.
Resource
Rapid diagnostic testing has made HIV diagnosis and subsequent treatment more accessible. However, multiple factors, including improper implementation of testing strategies and clerical errors, have been reported to lead to HIV misdiagnosis.
