Antiretroviral prophylaxis for HIV prevention in heterosexual men and women.
Oral TDF and TDF-FTC both protect against HIV-1 infection in heterosexual men and women, and both study medications significantly reduced the HIV- 1 incidence among both men andWomen.
Mortality of HIV-1-infected patients in the first year of antiretroviral therapy: comparison between low-income and high-income countries
Patients starting HAART in resource-poor settings have increased mortality rates in the first months on therapy, compared with those in developed countries, and timely diagnosis and assessment of treatment eligibility, coupled with free provision of HAART might reduce this excess mortality.
Adherence to antiretroviral therapy in sub-Saharan Africa and North America: a meta-analysis.
The findings indicate that favorable levels of adherence, much of which was assessed via patient self-report, can be achieved in sub-Saharan African settings and that adherence remains a concern in North America.
Mobile phone technologies improve adherence to antiretroviral treatment in a resource-limited setting: a randomized controlled trial of text message reminders
It is suggested that SMS reminders may be an important tool to achieve optimal treatment response in resource-limited settings and be used to promote high adherence to antiretroviral therapy.
Adherence to HAART: A Systematic Review of Developed and Developing Nation Patient-Reported Barriers and Facilitators
Important barriers to adherence are consistent across multiple settings and countries, and Clinicians should use this information to engage in open discussion with patients to promote adherence and identify barriers and facilitators within their own populations.
Barriers to Antiretroviral Adherence for Patients Living with HIV Infection and AIDS in Botswana
ARV adherence rates in Botswana were comparable with those seen in developed countries, as health care providers were often unable to identify which patients adhere to their ARV regimens.
Adherence to protease inhibitors, HIV-1 viral load, and development of drug resistance in an indigent population
A substantial proportion of homeless and marginally housed individuals had good adherence to PI therapy and a strong relationship was found between independent methods of measuring adherence and concurrent viral suppression.
Routine HIV Testing in Botswana: A Population-Based Study on Attitudes, Practices, and Human Rights Concerns
Routine testing appears to be widely supported and may reduce barriers to testing in Botswana, and measures should be implemented to assure true informed consent and human rights safeguards, including protection from HIV-related discrimination and protection of women against partner violence related to testing.
Non-adherence to highly active antiretroviral therapy predicts progression to AIDS.
The introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has produced a dramatic reduction in mortality among HIV-infected individuals [1–4]. Whereas the level of adherence to HAART is
Adherence is not a barrier to successful antiretroviral therapy in South Africa
The proportion of individuals achieving viral suppression matched results from the developing world and Socio‐economic status had no impact on adherence and should not be used as a limitation to ART access.
