    Overweight and obesity in local media: An analysis of media coverage in CDC-funded communities

This paper examines almost 3,000 news stories related to overweight and obesity in newspaper and television channels in multiple locations across the United States.

    Safety and tolerability of maraviroc-containing regimens to prevent HIV infection in women: A phase 2 randomized trial
    This study shows that, for U.S. women at risk of HIV infection, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) regimens containing maraviroc are safe and well-tolerated, compared with the standard regimen of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/emtricitabine. The authors also found that no new infections occurred with the study regimen, compared with the standard regimen, but more research is needed to determine whether that outcome is because of the study drug and whether the enrolled population was lower risk than anticipated.

    Electronic health, telemedicine and new paradigms for training and care
    This qualitative literature review assesses eHealth and mHealth training methods for HIV care that were published between 2016 and 2017. Notable findings were that the merging of electronic medical records systems improved telemedicine through mobile networks and instant messaging services to low-resource areas, and that few trials established efficient strategies to train HIV care providers or extenders on HIV care outcomes. The authors recommend more rigorous testing of electronic training interventions to demonstrate the impact on services for people living with HIV.

    Design of the HPTN 065 (TLC-Plus) study: A study to evaluate the feasibility of an enhanced test, linkto-care, plus treat approach for HIV prevention in the United States
    This article outlines the design of a multicomponent, community-based study evaluating the feasibility of the “test and treat” approach to HIV prevention in the United States. The authors found that the HIV Prevention Trails Network (HPTN) 065 study demonstrated the feasibility of implementing and evaluating a trial that includes several community sites and involves pragmatic approaches to study implementation and evaluation.

    Evaluation of a community-based hypertension improvement program (Com-HIP) in Ghana: Data from a baseline survey
    This paper presents the findings of a baseline survey on hypertension prevalence, awareness, treatment and control in Ghana. The findings indicate a high burden of hypertension and a very low level of treatment and control, despite a high level of awareness. These results suggest that current programs have failed to reduce hypertension and more innovative approaches should be considered to achieve meaningful hypertension control.
