About this book

Biomedical Advances in HIV Prevention: Social and Behavioral Perspectives

Lisa A. Eaton and Seth C. Kalichman, editors

Three decades into the epidemic, a great deal is known about HIV and its transmission, more people are living with the disease, and the virus is no longer seen as a death sentence. But new people continue to be infected with HIV each year, making prevention strategies that are medically effective and behaviorally engaging as urgent a priority as ever.

Biomedical Advances in HIV Prevention: Social and Behavioral Perspectives assembles the latest improvements, barriers to implementation, and possibilities for--and challenges to--future progress. Innovations such as pre-exposure prophylaxis (antiretroviral regimens for the high-risk uninfected) and treatment as prevention (early use of ART to reduce infectiousness of new patients) are examined, as are current findings on ongoing prevention and treatment concerns.

Contributors illuminate the complex realities entailing adherence, pointing out technological, behavioral, and cultural roadblocks as well as opportunities to significantly reduce infection rates. Detailed up-to-the-minute coverage includes:

  • Prevention services for persons living with HIV
  • Adherence to HIV treatment as prevention and pre-exposure prophylaxis
  • Advocating for rectal microbicides and safe lubricants
  • Mental health and substance use in the scale-up of HIV prevention
  • Risk compensation in response to HIV prevention
  • Implementing biomedical HIV prevention advances: reports from South Africa, Uganda, Australia, Thailand, United States, Ecuador, and Peru

Researchers, practitioners, and policy makers working in the fields of HIV/AIDS and public health will look toward Biomedical Advances in HIV Prevention: Social and Behavioral Perspectives as both a means for developing and assessing current programs and a blueprint for the next generation of prevention efforts.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A well-qualified international panel of authors provides an update on the latest effective biomedical technologies as well as a unique focus on the psychosocial factors that undermine implementation of the biomedical advances in HIV prevention. … Students, academics, clinicians, and policymakers all will find something of relevance in this book. … Detailed tables and figures in most chapters help summarize a wealth of information. The references are extensive and up to date.” (Thomas P. Guck, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2014)
