Knowledge of HIV status is associated with a decrease in the severity of depressive symptoms among female sex workers in Uganda and Zambia

Wed, 16 Oct 2019 00:00:00 GMT-05:00 - Ortblad, Katrina F.; Musoke, Daniel Kibuuka; Chanda, Michael M.; Ngabirano, Thomson; Velloza, Jennifer; Haberer, Jessica E.; McConnell, Margaret; Oldenburg, Catherine E.; BΓ€rnighausen, Till
Εισαγωγή: Knowledge of HIV-positive status may result in depressive symptoms, which may be a concern to scaling novel HIV testing interventions that move testing outside the health system and away from counselor support. Setting: Uganda and Zambia.
Μέθοδοι: We used longitudinal data from two female sex worker (FSW) cohorts in Uganda (n=960) and Zambia (n=965). Over four-months participants had ample opportunity to HIV test using standard-of-care services or self-tests. At baseline and four months, we measured participants’ perceived knowledge of HIV status, severity of depressive symptoms (continuous PHQ-9 scale, 0-27 points), and prevalence of likely depression (PHQ-9 scores β‰₯10). We estimated associations using individual fixed effects estimation.
Αποτελέσματα: Compared to unknown HIV status, knowledge of HIV-negative status was significantly associated with a decrease in depressive symptoms of 1.06 point in Uganda (95%CI -1.79, -0.34) and 1.68 points in Zambia (95%CI -2.70, -0.62). Knowledge of HIV-positive status was significantly associated with a decrease in depressive symptoms of 1.01 points in Uganda (95%CI -1.82, -0.20) and 1.98 points in Zambia (95%CI -3.09, -0.88). The prevalence of likely depression was not associated with knowledge of HIV status in Uganda, but was associated with a 14.1% decrease with knowledge of HIV-negative status (95%CI -22.1%, -6.0%) and 14.3% decrease with knowledge of HIV-positive status (95%CI -23.9%, -4.5%) in Zambia.
Συμπεράσματα: Knowledge of HIV status, be it positive or negative, was significantly associated with a decrease in depressive symptoms in two FSW populations. The expansion of HIV testing programs may have mental health benefits for FSWs. Contact details of the corresponding author: Katrina F.

Reducing provider workload while preserving patient safety: a randomized control trial using 2-way texting for post-operative follow-up in Zimbabwe’s voluntary medical male circumcision program

Wed, 16 Oct 2019 00:00:00 GMT-05:00 - Feldacker, Caryl; Murenje, Vernon; Holeman, Isaac; Xaba, Sinokuthemba; Makunike-Chikwinya, Batsirai; Korir, Michael; Gundidza, Patricia Tapiwa; Holec, Marrianne; Barnhart, Scott; Tshimanga, Mufuta
Εισαγωγή: Voluntary medical male circumcisions (MC) is safe: the vast majority of men heal without complication. However, guidelines require multiple follow-up visits. In Zimbabwe, where high mobile phone ownership, severe healthcare worker shortages, and rapid MC scale up intersect, we tested a two-way texting (2wT) intervention to reduce provider workload while safeguarding patient safety. Setting: Two high-volume facilities providing MC near Harare, Zimbabwe.
Μέθοδοι: A prospective, un-blinded, non-inferiority, randomized control trial of 722 adult MC clients with cell phones randomized 1:1. 2wT clients (n=362) responded to a daily text with in-person follow-up only if desired or an AE suspected. The control group (n=359) received routine in-person visits. All men were asked to return on post-operative day 14 for review. Adverse events ≀ day 14 visit and number of in-person visits were compared between groups.
Αποτελέσματα: Cumulative AEs were identified in 0.84% (%% CI: 0.28,2.43) among routine care men as compared to 1.88% (95% CI: 0.86, 4.03) of 2wT participants. Non-inferiority cannot be ruled out (95% CI: -∞, +2.72); however, AE rates did not differ between groups (p=0.32). 2wT men attended an average of 0.30 visits as compared to 1.69 visits among routine care men, a significant reduction (p<0.001).
Συμπέρασμα: Although non-inferiority cannot be demonstrated, increased AEs in the 2wT arm likely reflect improved AE ascertainment. 2wT serves as a proxy for active surveillance, improving the quality of MC patient care. 2wT also reduced provider workload. 2wT provides an option for men to heal safely at home, returning to care when desired or if complications arise. 2wT should be further tested to enable widespread scale-up.
