International sexual partnerships (ISPs) found in the iPrEx Study potentially resulted in two categories of power dynamics. Having been paid for sex was associated with an increased likelihood of having condomless sex in an ISP, whereas higher education was associated with a decreased likelihood of having condomless sex.

The integration of family planning and HIV services led to a sustained increase in the use of more effective contraceptives and a decrease in the rate of pregnancy two years after the integrated service model was implemented in Kenya. (Starley Shade, CAPS/PRC)
Finding the best mobile health (mHealth) platforms for text-messaging interventions (TMI) remains a challenge. This review can be a resource for for researchers and health professionals wanting to integrate TMIs into health interventions. (W. Brown, CAPS/PRC)
Among a sample of mainly gay white men, nearly 1 in 3 participants reported “simply forgot” as a barrier to antiretroviral therapy (ART). However, this finding yielded a small effect size in its association with a 4-day treatment interruption when using a dominance analysis (a regression-based approach). (J. Sauceda, T. Neilands, M. Johnson, P. Saberi, CAPS/PRC)
Project Bridge Oakland (PBO) was an intervention that maintained continuity of HIV care for adults triply diagnosed with HIV, mental health, and substance-related disorders.
