  • Long-Acting HIV Treatment Is Coming. Our Health Care System Needs to Prepare

    New conversations are starting in HIV care as phase III trials have shown that monthly injections of cabotegravir and rilpivirine (Edurant) are non-inferior to a three-drug pill regimen. In 2018, TheBody asked a range of people living with HIV about their willingness to switch to an injectible, and most had mixed feelings. But even if there's widespread interest in this new way of taking antiretroviral therapy (and most likely also prevention, not too far away), it's important to consider not just the willingness of people to move to this new form of treatment, but whether health care systems and providers in the U.S. are ready to support this innovation.

  • How South Africa can improve community-based HIV services

    South Africa introduced a community-based primary health care programme in 2012. The aim of the programme, which includes a large HIV component, is to improve access to health care. Under the programme, community health workers provide a wide range of services such as health education and referrals to clinics for HIV testing and treatment. Community health workers also support people on antiretroviral therapy and trace those who default on treatment. We did a study that examined the factors impacting on the success of the community-based HIV programme in a district in Limpopo, one of South Africa’s rural provinces.
