Gonorrhea and chlamydia (GC/CT) testing falls below recommended rates for people living with HIV (PLWH) in routine care. Despite evidence that homelessness and unstable housing (HUH) negatively impacts clinical outcomes for PLWH, little is known about GC/CT screening for HUH PLWH in routine care
Using an observational cohort of PWLH establishing care at a large publicly funded HIV clinic in San Francisco between February, 2013 - December, 2014 and with at least one primary care visit (PCV) before February 2016, we assessed GC/CT testing for HUH (staying outdoors, in shelters, in vehicles, or in places not made for habitation in the last year) compared to stably housed patients. We calculated 1) the odds of having GC/CT screening at a PCV using logistic regression with random effects to handle intra-subject correlations 2) the percent of time enrolled in clinical care in which patients had any GC/CT testing ("time-in-coverage") based on 180-day periods and using linear regression modeling.

Housing arrangements for the elderly or aged, intended to foster independent living. The housing may take the form of group homes or small apartments. It is available to the economically self-supporting but the concept includes housing for the elderly with some physical limitations. The concept should be differentiated from HOMES FOR THE AGED which is restricted to long-term geriatric facilities providing supervised medical and nursing services.
A quality-of-life scale developed in the United States in 1972 as a measure of health status or dysfunction generated by a disease. It is a behaviorally based questionnaire for patients and addresses activities such as sleep and rest, mobility, recreation, home management, emotional behavior, social interaction, and the like. It measures the patient's perceived health status and is sensitive enough to detect changes or differences in health status occurring over time or between groups.
