Background:Reducing HIV infection and improving outcomes along the continuum of HIV care are high priorities of the US National HIV/AIDS strategy. Interventions that target multiple problem behaviors simultaneously in an integrated approach (referred to as integrated interventions) may improve prevention and care outcomes of persons living with HIV (PLWH). This systematic review and meta-analysis examines the effects of integrated interventions. Methods:A systematic review, including both… 
Challenges in the Evaluation of Interventions to Improve Engagement Along the HIV Care Continuum in the United States: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A systematic literature search for interventions to improve HIV linkage to care, retention in care, reengagement in care and adherence to antiretroviral therapy in the US published from 2007-mid 2015 found substantial heterogeneity in intervention types, outcome definitions, and effect measures.
Overview of systematic reviews on strategies to improve treatment initiation, adherence to antiretroviral therapy and retention in care for people living with HIV: part 1
TLDR
Interventions along the care cascade are mostly focused on adherence and do not sufficiently address all vulnerable populations, and digital, mixed and peer/community-based interventions were reported to be effective across the continuum of care.
Efficacy of Psychological Interventions Towards the Reduction of High-Risk Sexual Behaviors Among People Living with HIV: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis, 2010–2020
TLDR
Overall, participants in the intervention group reduced sexual risk or condomless sex relative to control groups, and the effect was higher for people having sex with HIV-positive partners comparing with those who had sexwith HIV-negative or unknown status partners.

Preliminary evidence of an intervention to address sexual and mental health of MSM living with HIV in Latin America with well-designed, relevant, facilitated discussion of sex in a nonjudgmental manner, and helped make positive changes in participants’ sexual lives is provided.
Research Synthesis, HIV Prevention Response, and Public Health: CDC’s HIV/AIDS Prevention Research Synthesis Project
TLDR
The contributions of the PRS Project to HIV prevention and public health efforts in the United States can be credited to CDC’s long-standing support of the project and its context within a federal prevention agency, where HIV programs and policies were developed and implemented.
“The role of case management in HIV treatment adherence: HPTN 078”
TLDR
This study provided greater insight into the main findings from HPTN 078, including an in-depth description of the multiple barriers to adherence faced by this largely “out-of-care” population, as well as a more nuanced understanding of the benefits and challenges of implementing MI.
The Continuum of HIV Care in the Urban United States: Black Men Who Have Sex With Men (MSM) Are Less Likely Than White MSM to Receive Antiretroviral Therapy.
  • S. Vermund
  • Medicine
    The Journal of infectious diseases
  • 2017
TLDR
A conspicuous health disparity was rediscovered, namely, that black MSM were less likely to secure ART in each of the 3 NHBS MSM study years of 2008, 2011, and 2014, and this finding persisted even after controlling for other predictors of lower access.
Effects of cognitive-behavioural therapy on anxiety, depression and condom use in people with HIV in Mexico City: a pilot study
TLDR
The CBT intervention had positive effects in reducing anxiety and depression, which could facilitate the acquisition of healthy sexual behaviours in people living with HIV.
Integrated care of severe infectious diseases to people with substance use disorders; a systematic review

TLDR
Interventions targeting PWLH are efficacious in reducing unprotected sex and acquisition of sexually transmitted diseases and should be incorporated into community HIV prevention efforts and further evaluated for effectiveness.

TLDR
The meta-analyses confirmed the short-term impact of prevention interventions on reducing self-reported UVAI among PLWHA irrespective of the type of sexual partner, but did not support a definite conclusion on long-term effect.
Behavioural interventions for HIV positive prevention in developing countries: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Comprehensive positive prevention interventions targeting diverse populations and covering a range of intervention modalities are needed to keep HIV+ individuals physically and mentally healthy, prevent transmission of HIV infection and increase the agency and involvement of people living with HIV.
Integrated behavioral intervention to improve HIV/AIDS treatment adherence and reduce HIV transmission.
TLDR
A theory-based integrated behavioral intervention can improve HIV treatment adherence and reduce HIV transmission risks, and HIV treatment as prevention should be bundled with behavioral interventions to maximize effectiveness.

TLDR
TAP reduced transmission risk among HIV-positive MSM, although results are modest, and the key elements of TAP-computer-based and individually tailored session content, delivered by peers, in the primary care setting-warrant further exploration.

TLDR
Cognitive behavioral intervention programs can effectively reduce the potential of HIV transmission to others among people living with HIV who report significant transmission risk behavior.

TLDR
A brief, culturally relevant prevention intervention for HIV-infected MSM, which could be integrated into HIV care, and was differentially effective in reducing HIV TRB for those who screened in for baseline depression, but this was not the case for Those who did not screen in for depression.
