With only about one-quarter of Americans living with HIV being virally suppressed, more Americans becoming newly infected each year, and an aging cohort of HIV specialty care providers (who started providing care to HIV infected persons in the 1980’s), it is essential that health professional training programs incorporate curricula and experience regarding HIV prevention, diagnosis, care, and treatment.

UMBAST - How is HIV Training/TA Different on the Border?

Publish Date: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Over the past couple months I have completed trainings in both rural and urban areas of the border in California and Arizona. We also had an UMBAST face-to-face meeting on the border near Brownsville, Texas. I’d like to use this posting as a discussion of unmet border needs. I’d like to hear about your HIV-related training and technical assistance (TA) needs as providers in community clinics and organizations on the border. Over the next 3 years the AETCs and other federal training centers (FTCs) covering TB, substance abuse, STDs, prevention, and family planning will collaborate with UMBAST to better serve border community health centers.

If you are reading this entry it is likely that you work on the U.S. border, are interested in HIV along the U.S. border, or are looking for border-related HIV resources. For clarity you should know that ‘the border’ covers U.S. communities 60 miles above Mexico and stretches 2,000 miles long from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. Border-related HIV issues like migrant populations, urban and rural health, substance abuse, and stigma, for example, are topics that are not unique to this area, but are highlighted there.

Pitavastatin and Darunavir/Ritonavir

Publish Date: 
Friday, October 5, 2012
Treatment of dyslipidemia is often complicated by drug interactions between statins and antiretrovirals. Pitavastatin is one of the newer statins approved and is one of the few that is not metabolized primarily by the CYP450 3A4 pathway. It is predominantly metabolized via glucuronidation and so, theoretically, is less likely to interact with NNRTIs or PIs.

New England AETC logoThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that by 2015, 50% of people living with HIV/AIDS will be over the age of fifty. This represents some good news (those infected earlier in their lifespan are living longer), but also some bad news (those over 50 are acquiring new HIV infections).
