Health Department HIV Prevention Programs That Support the National HIV/AIDS Strategy: The Enhanced Comprehensive HIV Prevention Planning Project, 2010-2013.
Sat, 06 Feb 2016 04:17:02 +0100 | Public Health Reports
CONCLUSIONS: Overall, these findings indicate that health departments in areas with a high burden of AIDS successfully shifted their HIV prevention resources to scale up important HIV programs and make progress toward NHAS goals.

CONCLUSION: The ECHPP evaluation (2008-2015) will assess whether ECHPP programmatic activities in 12 areas with high AIDS prevalence contributed to changes in client outcomes, and whether these changes were associated with changes in longer-term, community-level impact.

Choice of antiretroviral drugs for continued treatment scale-up in a public health approach: what more do we need to know?
Sat, 06 Feb 2016 01:44:02 +0100 | Journal of the International AIDS Society
CONCLUSIONS: For continued scale-up of antiretroviral treatment in low- and middle-income countries, use of first-line triple combinations including efavirenz 600 mg once daily is supported by the largest evidence base. Additional studies are underway to evaluate new treatments in key populations, and these results may justify changes to these recommendations.

Examining geographic and socio-economic differences in outpatient and inpatient consumer expenditures for treating HIV/AIDS in Nigeria.
Sat, 06 Feb 2016 01:44:02 +0100 | Journal of the International AIDS Society
CONCLUSIONS: Treatment expenditures were quite high, inequitable and catastrophic in some instances, hence further jeopardizing the welfare of the households and the PLHIV. Strategically locating fully functional treatment centres to make them more accessible to PLHIV will largely reduce expenditures for travel and the need for food during visits. Additionally, financial risk-protection mechanisms such as treatment vouchers, reimbursement and health insurance that will significantly reduce the expenditures borne by PLHIV and their households in seeking ART should be implemented.

Numerical investigations on energy harvesting potential of thin pzt patches adhesively bonded on rc structures
Sat, 06 Feb 2016 00:00:00 +0100 | Sensors and Actuators A: Physical
This article investigates the effect of the adhesive bond and the related parameters on the energy harvesting capability of thin PZT patches operating in surface-bonded/embedded configurations bonded onto RC structures. Towards this end, a numerical model is generated for a real-life sized simply supported RC beam instrumented with (a) surface bonded piezo-sensor (SBPS), and (b) embedded PZT patch. Coupled field analysis is performed for both the configurations. Before employing for parametric study, the numerical model is validated with the previously developed analytical model as well as the experimental observations. The numerical model is utilized to investigate the effect of the varying load resistance, the piezo and the bond thicknesses, the patch’s plan dimensions, the shear modul...

Optical coherence tomography platforms and parameters for glaucoma diagnosis and progression
Fri, 05 Feb 2016 16:04:48 +0100 | Current Opinion in Ophthalmology
Purpose of review: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) aids in the diagnosis and long-term monitoring of various ocular diseases, including glaucoma. Initially, the retinal nerve fiber layer was the only OCT structural parameter used in glaucoma. Subsequent research has resulted in more retinal and optic nerve head parameters. In addition, OCT is being investigated for its ability to assess ocular hemodynamics. This review summarizes these spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) parameters in the context of glaucoma.
