Welcome to our latest tour of recently published HIV-related research. This week, we learn more about:

  • How far we still have to go in fully embracing Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations for routine HIV testing among high-risk Americans.
  • The relationship between mental health, engagement in HIV care, and viral load -- which is not as clear cut as you may think.
  • Evolving perceptions of health care discrimination experienced by people living with HIV.
  • How zoledronic acid may be a better intervention for bone mass improvement among people taking tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) than switching off the TDF.

Come with us as we take a closer look at each of these findings. To beat HIV, you have to follow the science!
