To lower rates of HIV infection ... [cached]

To lower rates of HIV infection and illness, "we must get serious about hard-to-reach populations" like these, lead researcher Lisa Metsch, of Columbia University in New York City, explained in a university news release.

Giving people cash rewards for healthy improvements in behavior - for example, exercising or stopping smoking - has been somewhat successful for other patient populations.
So, Metsch's group wondered if a similar approach might help HIV-infected people battling drug or alcohol abuse.
However, the team reported that rates of suppression of HIV on blood tests were the same after one year, regardless of which group the patients were enrolled in. In each group, only about one-third of patients achieved successful viral suppression, Metsch's group said.
Why didn't patient navigation or the cash bonuses help? "Participants in this trial face complex issues including considerable socioeconomic disadvantage," theorized Metsch, who is chair of sociomedical sciences at Columbia's Mailman School of Public Health.
Her team believes more research is needed to find ways to reach people who battle both addiction and HIV infection.
"We will not achieve an AIDS-free generation if we don't address substance use and the other [illnesses] that come with substance use," Metsch said.

Lisa Metsch, chair of the department of sociomedical sciences at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health in New York City, said creative strategies are needed to boost testing rates among teens and young adults. Her research group, for example, has explored HIV testing at dental offices. High schools and other places where teens congregate are other potential venues for testing, she said.

Gregory Phillips II, a research assistant professor with the department of medical social sciences at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, agreed with Metsch.
