Poor quality HIV services for diagnosis, linkage to care and monitoring, as well as pervasive stigma, continue to exist, according to a survey focused on barriers to quality HIV treatment among 2777 people living with HIV in 14 low- and middle-income countries, presented by the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition at the 20th International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA) in Kigali, Rwanda, last week.
Switching from tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) to tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) is associated with an increase in lipids, but this is reversed when switching back to TDF, German investigators report in the December 1 issue of AIDS. Lipids increased in over two-thirds of those making the switch, but both cholesterol and triglyceride levels fell back again after reverting to TDF, especially in individuals who had experienced the biggest increases in lipids when switching to TAF.
There exists a few people living with HIV who, after stopping antiretroviral therapy (ART), manage to sustain the viral load suppression – no viral rebound – achieved while on treatment, for months or even years. This is commonly described as an HIV functional cure or ART-free HIV remission.
Two recent US studies find growing awareness and acceptability of the Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U) message among men who have sex with men (MSM).

Chemsex in the past four weeks was reported by 2.9% of respondents in Ukraine, 3.5% in Russia, 4.1% in Turkey and 2.8% in Lebanon. (The two European countries with the largest proportion of chemsex users were Belgium and the Netherlands, with 11 and 15% respectively.)
