Current United States Navy policy supports the continuation of duty for active duty (AD) service members living with HIV infection. The creation of this policy is instrumental to prevent exclusion and to promote career expansion and promotional opportunities for AD service members infected with HIV. The established instruction parallels the HIV care continuum, a widely accepted public health model. No studies have been done to determine whether allowing service members to fill operational and Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS) assignments disrupts this continuum of care. This retrospective study aims to evaluate how an operational or OCONUS assignment impacts the ability of an HIV AD service members to receive the standard of care HIV medical treatment and maintain viral suppression.

Little is known about long-term viral suppression (VS) rates for patients who start ART soon after diagnosis. We describe virologic outcomes from the San Francisco-based Ward 86 RAPID-ART program.
Although HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is available at no cost to personnel in the United States (U.S.) military, uptake has been lower than expected. An online survey was conducted assessing cu...
This study is the first to our knowledge to examine associations of survey-reported dietary supplement use with medical record diagnoses, rather than retrospective self-reported supplement use at the ...
Tenofovir-diphosphate (TFV-DP) in dried blood spots (DBS) is an objective long-term adherence measure but data are limited on its ability to predict virologic suppression (VS) in people on antiretrovi...
An undetectable serum HIV-1 load is key to effectiveness of antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, which depends on adherence to treatment. We evaluated factors possibly associated with ARV adherence and virol...
The proposed study is a cohort-randomized controlled trial of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy-enhanced ShipShape (ACT+SS) compared to the standard ShipShape-only program, for overweight ...
Among nearly 1 million HIV-infected children receiving antiretroviral treatment (ART), as many as 40% of those living in resource limited settings have not achieved virologic suppression. ...
The Siyaphambili Study is a sequential multistage adaptive randomized trial (SMART) to compare the effectiveness and durability of two behavioral interventions on the HIV-1 virologic respo...
Long-term side effects, the expense of medications, and the difficulty of taking medications continuously for long periods of time are all problems with complicated anti-HIV drug regimens....
The main purpose is to explore whether atazanavir/ritonavir (ATV/RTV) single enhanced protease inhibitor therapy can maintain virologic suppression without a marked increase in virologic f...
