Consistent condom use in HIV/AIDS patients receiving antiretroviral therapy in northwestern Ethiopia: implication to reduce transmission and multiple infections.

Abstract Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is one of the greatest public health problems of sub-Saharan African countries. Consistent condom use, among others, remains the most effective barrier method against HIV transmission. However, existing reports on frequency of consistent condom use have targeted the general public, rather than HIV/AIDS patients due, to the assumption that condom use is not important in HIV-infected persons. Since consistent condom use among HIV/AIDS patients is vital, to prevent the virus transmission from the infected to noninfected as well as to prevent multiple infections among already infected persons, its frequency and determining factors need to be investigated.

AB  - BACKGROUND: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immune deficiency
      syndrome (AIDS) is one of the greatest public health problems of sub-Saharan
      African countries. Consistent condom use, among others, remains the most
      effective barrier method against HIV transmission. However, existing reports on
      frequency of consistent condom use have targeted the general public, rather than 
      HIV/AIDS patients due, to the assumption that condom use is not important in
      HIV-infected persons. Since consistent condom use among HIV/AIDS patients is
      vital, to prevent the virus transmission from the infected to noninfected as well
      as to prevent multiple infections among already infected persons, its frequency
      and determining factors need to be investigated. METHODS: A cross-sectional study
      was conducted from April 2013 to May 2013 among 317 randomly selected patients
      who were currently taking antiretroviral therapy (ART). Logistic regressions were
      performed to examine predictors of consistent condom use. RESULTS: A total of 317
      HIV/AIDS patients who were currently receiving ART participated in the study, and
      the mean age of the study population was 31.4 (standard deviation [SD] 10.5)
      years. Overall, 250 (78.9%) participants reported consistent condom use in the
      past 6 months. Of these, 140 (88.6%) were males and 110 (69.1%) females.
      Multivariate analysis indicated that respondents with an advanced level of
      education were more likely to report regular use of condoms (odds ratio [OR]
      8.98; 95% confidence interval [CI] 5.06-14.45) compared with illiterate
      participants. Being male (OR 6.87; 95% CI 3.84-11.22), living in or around a town
      (OR 4.65; 95% CI 3.09-9.11), and taking ART for longer time (OR 3.91; 95% CI
      2.07-6.25) were also positively associated with consistent condom use.
      CONCLUSION: Females, patients living in rural areas, uneducated groups, and new
      ART users were less likely to use condoms consistently. The importance of
      consistent condom use should be well-addressed in HIV/AIDS patients, to prevent
      transmission and multiple infections of HIV.
