The rebellious man: Next-of-kin accounts of the death of a male relative on antiretroviral therapy in sub-Saharan Africa

The HIV response is hampered by many obstacles to progression along the HIV care cascade, with men, in particular, experiencing different forms of disruption. One group of men, whose stories remain untold, are those who have succumbed to HIV-related illness. In this paper, we explore how next-of-kin account for the death of a male relative.

Scaling a waterfall: a meta-ethnography of adolescent progression through the stages of HIV care in sub-Saharan Africa

Observational studies have shown considerable attrition among adolescents living with HIV across the "cascade" of HIV care in sub-Saharan Africa, leading to higher mortality rates compared to HIV-infected adults or children. We synthesized evidence from qualitative studies on factors that promote or undermine engagement with HIV services among adolescents living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.

Yes
Author
Venter, Willem Daniel Francois; Ford, Nathan; Vitoria, Marco; Stevens, Wendy

The much-discussed HIV ‘cascade of care’ has demonstrated marked loss between HIV diagnosis, linkage and initiation of antiretroviral treatment (ART), compromising mortality and morbidity benefits to the individual, as well as public health prevention impact. As large-scale programmes provide more long-term data, opportunities have arisen to reduces losses across the cascade.

HIV treatment cascade

Yes
Author

The HIV treatment cascade is a model that outlines the steps of care that people living with HIV go through from initial diagnosis to achieving viral suppression (a very low level of HIV in the body), and shows the proportion of individuals living with HIV who are engaged at each stage.
