Cervical screening uptake and abnormalities among women attending sexual health clinics for HIV care 
Donna M. Tilley, Catherine C. O'Connor, Sunil Adusumilli, Maggie Smith, Clara Marin-Zapata, Catriona Ooi and David J. Templeton

The aim of this study was to describe cervical screening uptake and assess correlates of screen-detected abnormalities in women attending sexual health services for HIV care. Of 156 women, 115 had documentation of a Pap test at least once in 3 years and 9.6% had an annual Pap test performed. Pap abnormalities were associated with younger age, being born in Sub-Saharan Africa, more recent arrival in Australia, lower CD4 count, detectable viral load, shorter time on antiretroviral therapy and more recent HIV diagnosis. Women accessing sexual health services for HIV care, especially those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, appear to be substantially under-screened and efforts to optimise screening are needed.

Reattendance and chlamydia retesting rates at 12 months among young people attending Australian general practice clinics 2007–10: a longitudinal study 
Emma R. Weaver, Anna L. Bowring, Rebecca Guy, Caroline van Gemert, Jane S. Hocking, Douglas I. Boyle, Tony Merritt, Clare Heal, Phyllis M. Lau, Basil Donovan, Margaret E. Hellard and

Clinical guidelines commonly recommend annual chlamydia testing in young people. The Australian Collaboration for Coordinated Enhanced Sentinel Surveillance of Sexually Transmitted Infections and Blood-Borne Viruses system (ACCESS) extracted consultation and pathology data on 16–29-year-olds attending 25 general practice (GP) clinics in 2007–10. We calculated the proportion of individuals with an initial negative test that reattended at 12 months (±3 months) and retested at 12 months (±3 months). Although over half of young people reattended their GP clinic approximately 1 year after a negative chlamydia baseline test, retesting at this visit was low. Strategies are needed to promote regular attendance and testing to both patients and clinicians.

Psychosocial factors related to willingness to use pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV prevention among Black men who have sex with men attending a community event 
Lisa A. Eaton, Daniel D. Driffin, Harlan Smith, Christopher Conway-Washington, Denise White and Chauncey Cherry

In the US, Black men who have sex with men are disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS. Using antiretroviral medications for HIV prevention is a promising option, yet many barriers to accessing this form of prevention exist. It is imperative that we prioritise research into understanding these barriers better; failure to do so will impede the potential of this prevention strategy

Condom use motivations and selected behaviours with new versus established sex partners 
Richard A. Crosby, Robin R. Milhausen, Cynthia A. Graham, William L. Yarber, Stephanie A. Sanders, Richard Charnigo and Lydia A. Shrier

Whether people use condoms differentially as a function of being in a new versus established relationship has never been investigated using event-level data. Applying an event-level analysis, this study found differences in motivation for condom use and actual use in a sample of males and females attending sexually transmissible infection clinics in the US. Clinic-based counselling to promote safer-sex behaviours should recognize differences between new versus established sex partners.

Parents' views on human papillomavirus vaccination for sexually transmissible infection prevention: a qualitative study 
Linda M. Niccolai, Caitlin E. Hansen, Marisol Credle, Sheryl A. Ryan and Eugene D. Shapiro

Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination coverage in the US remains suboptimal. The results of this qualitative study reveal that discussing sexually transmissible infection (STI) prevention in the context of HPV vaccination in addition to cancer prevention appears to be well accepted by urban low-income minority families. Communication of this comprehensive yet simple message may help raise awareness, acceptability and uptake of HPV vaccines.

'I demand to be treated as the person I am': experiences of accessing primary health care for Australian adults who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or queer 
Chee S. Koh, Melissa Kang and Tim Usherwood

Individuals who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or queer suffer higher morbidity than the general population, but may experience significant barriers to accessing primary health care. An Internet survey of these experiences reinforced the importance of communicating acknowledgement and respect for the unique identity of each individual. Primary health care providers have a key role in ensuring equitable access

Do family factors protect against sexual risk behaviour and teenage pregnancy among multiply disadvantaged young people? Findings from an English longitudinal study 
Chris Bonell, Meg Wiggins, Adam Fletcher and Elizabeth Allen

It is common for policy makers to target ‘at risk’ youth and families for additional intervention, although we do not know if or how the family environment shapes sexual risk taking among disadvantaged youth. This study examined data from 1285 ‘at risk’ 13–15 year olds in England and found limited evidence of any family-related effects on sexual health or teenage pregnancy, although family structure and communication may influence young women’s sexual risk taking in deprived contexts. Targeted family-based interventions may not be appropriate for changing the sexual behaviour of disadvantaged young people, especially young men.

Adherence-enhancing interventions for active antiretroviral therapy in sub-Saharan Africa: a systematic review and meta-analysis 
Tim Mathes, Sunya-Lee Antoine and Dawid Pieper

In sub-Saharan Africa, an estimated 23% of HIV-infected patients are nonadherent. The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the effectiveness of adherence-enhancing interventions for active antiretroviral therapy. Six randomised controlled trials were included in the review. The considered interventions increase adherence only slightly. The results indicate that adherence-enhancing interventions should focus on nonadherent patients.

Social support and depressive symptoms among 'money' boys and general men who have sex with men in Shanghai, China 
Huamei Yan, Frank Y. Wong, Tony Zheng, Zhen Ning, Yingying Ding, Eric J. Nehl, Lavinia Lin and Na He

Little was known about social support and depression among men who have sex with men (MSM) in China. The aim of this study was to fill this gap. The results indicate that social support is protective against depression among this population, whereas ‘Money boys’ experience more depression than general MSM. These findings underscore the need for tailored psychological programs targeting these two types of MSM.

Testing for ‘threads’ and leucocyte esterase in first-void urine to exclude the diagnosis of non-specific urethritis in asymptomatic men 
Sanjeeva N. S. Pallawela, Christopher Sonnex, Julia Burdett, Dawn Cooper, Katrina Nethercott, Catherina M. Thomas, Peter Goon, Hayley Webb and Christopher Carne

The aim of this pilot study was to determine if testing for urinary threads, and/or leucocyte esterase (LE) or both in asymptomatic men is a good screening tool for nonspecific urethritis (NSU). Of the126 asymptomatic men, 8% met microscopic criteria for the diagnosis of NSU. The negative predictive value for threads and LE was 96% and 93% and combining both gave a negative predictive value of 96%. The absence of threads and negative LE makes urethritis highly unlikely, making urinary nucleic acid amplification testing sufficient.

Australian sexually transmissible infection and HIV testing guidelines for asymptomatic men who have sex with men 2014: a review of the evidence 
David J. Templeton, Phillip Read, Rajesh Varma and Christopher Bourne

A literature review was performed to inform the 2014 update of the Australian testing guidelines for asymptomatic men who have sex with men (MSM). Key changes include a recommendation for pharyngeal chlamydia testing, use of nucleic acid amplification tests alone for gonorrhoea testing, more frequent gonorrhoea and chlamydia testing in HIV-positive MSM, shorter time required since last void for chlamydia first-void urine collection, and the use of electronic reminders to increase STI and HIV retesting rates among MSM.

Transforming Australia’s HIV prevention and treatment efforts to achieve an AIDS-free generation: the United Nations Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS and the Melbourne Declaration ‘Action on HIV’ 
blank image
Bill Whittaker
pp. 101-106

Scientific advances in HIV prevention and treatment, together with the 2011 United Nations Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS, offer unique opportunities to transform the global fight against AIDS. However, progress in responding to these opportunities has been mixed, prompting Australian scientists, clinicians and community advocates to issue the Melbourne Declaration ‘Action on HIV’, which calls for Australia’s HIV response to be revitalised through several key actions. These changes can strengthen Australia’s HIV response domestically and also enhance Australia’s leadership in the global quest to achieve an ‘AIDS-free generation’.

'Getting to zero' in Asia and the Pacific through more strategic use of antiretrovirals for HIV prevention 
blank image

pp. 107-118

The strategic use of antiretrovirals is critical to ending AIDS in Asia. Nevertheless, low rates of HIV testing among men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers and other key populations evidence low treatment coverage where treatment could have the greatest prevention benefits. Enhanced collaboration is needed between clinical and community service providers to reach, test, treat and retain key populations in care.

pp. 119-125

Access to HIV treatment and care vary between countries in Asia and the Pacific. Differences between high-income economies and the rest of the region are remarkable. Many high-income countries provide antiretroviral therapy (ART) to their citizens; middle- and low-income countries have rapid ART scale-up and are dependent on international funding. The global goal of achieving universal access to ART requires mainly low- and middle-income countries to be targeted.

The effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy taken by HIV-infected individuals to prevent HIV transmission to HIV-uninfected persons (TasP) and antiretroviral pre-exposure prophylaxis taken by HIV-uninfected individuals to prevent HIV acquisition (PrEP) is unknown in HIV epidemics concentrated in populations at high risk for HIV. This paper investigates the challenges and barriers of implementing TasP and PrEP in the Asian context and makes the case that implementation research in Asia can provide data on the effectiveness of such interventions in concentrated epidemics.

Can treatment-based HIV prevention curb the epidemic among gay and other men who have sex with men? A narrative synthesis of increasing evidence for moderating and countervailing effects 
blank image
John B. F. de Wit and Philippe C. G. Adam
pp. 137-145

As HIV epidemics among gay and other men who have sex with men (GMSM) persist, there is hope that the use of antiretroviral therapy (ART) for prevention can curb infections. However, evidence of the beneficial effects of ART-based HIV prevention for GMSM remains limited. ART-based approaches increase people’s options to protect themselves and others, but their impact depends on what has already been achieved and how they will be used.

HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis and treatment as prevention: a review of awareness and acceptability among men who have sex with men in the Asia-Pacific region and the Americas

Martin Holt
pp. 166-170

This review assesses acceptability research for HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and treatment as prevention (TasP) among men who have sex with men (MSM). There has been limited research on the acceptability of PrEP outside the United States and no research to date evaluating the acceptability of TasP. PrEP appears to be reasonably acceptable to MSM, but studies of HIV treatment optimism suggest that MSM will be sceptical of TasP.

pp. 171-179

The underlying determinants for acceptability of HIV chemoprophylaxis include the individual, couple dynamics and the larger social and cultural context. Overall, Indian women and men had a positive attitude towards the concept and use of microbicide products. However, the need for HIV chemoprophylaxis is greatest for high-risk groups like female sex walkers and men who have sex with men. Acceptability in these groups needs to be further explored, including demonstration projects for program introduction.

pp. 180-199

This paper revisits Thailand’s global role model function of effective HIV/AIDS control and high-quality biomedical HIV prevention research. Results indicate that Thailand’s initial response in raising the level of the political significance of HIV/AIDS was indeed extraordinary, but its effectiveness declined over time. However, the volume and quality of the country’s biomedical HIV prevention research continued to be high. Thailand has made a huge contribution to the global management and control of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

pp. 200-206

In recent years there has been increasing evidence that early initiation of antiretroviral therapy may provide health benefits for those infected with HIV while also reducing the risk of onward transmission of the virus. Recently-diagnosed gay men, interviewed as part of the HIV Seroconversion Study, were asked about their knowledge and experience of, and their decisions about whether or not to commence, HIV treatment.

Rolling out new biomedical HIV prevention tools: what can be learned from Avahan, the India AIDS initiative?

pp. 207-216

The promise of new biobehavioural prevention advances, namely pre-exposure propyhlaxis (PrEP) and treatment as prevention, for key populations can only be realized if they are implemented with adequate scale and coverage. Globally, coverage of key populations with classic prevention services is inadequate and they have limited access to health services in many settings. The approaches used by Avahan in India to achieve a scaled prevention intervention with high coverage and key population engagement that served as a platform for increasing service scope to expand clinical services over time services are discussed. Key elements included clear service definitions and denominator-based targets, robust and routine data systems, multilevel supervision and cross-learning, as well as a strong cadre of key population peer outreach workers who addressed structural barriers and provided mechanisms for interaction between the key populations and health services.
