Health Advisory: Rapidly Growing Clusters of Ongoing HIV Transmission in Texas

DSHS encourages Texas healthcare providers to enhance efforts to prevent, diagnose and treat HIV in the wake of 16 rapidly growing clusters of HIV infections in the state.

Laboratory analysis of these infections indicates sustained transmission of genetically similar types of HIV. Many of the persons within these clusters reported meeting sex partners through social media. The clusters are primarily comprised of gay men and other men who have sex with men, with evidence that active HIV transmission is ongoing.

Molecular surveillance (genotyping) is a new tool being used by the U.S. CDC to identify clusters of HIV infection. Recent analysis indicates that the 16 clusters identified in Texas are largely centered in the Houston, San Antonio and Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan areas, but many have one or more persons within the cluster who reside in other locations in Texas. Cases are spread across more than 25 Texas counties. The clusters range in size from 5 to 34 cases, with over 200 cases being linked to the Texas clusters. However, as public health continues their work, it is likely that additional cases may be linked to these clusters.

CDC Public Information Campaign Materials

The CDC provides several resources for use by local communities through their Act Against AIDS initiative. Act Against AIDS includes HIV prevention campaigns and projects that use mass media (TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, and the internet) to deliver important HIV prevention messages to a variety of audiences. These programs include:

  • Let’s Stop HIV Together – raises awareness about HIV and its impact on the lives of all Americans and fights stigma by showing that persons with HIV are real people—mothers, fathers, friends, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, partners, wives, husbands and co-workers.
  • Doing It – a national HIV testing and prevention campaign designed to motivate all adults to get tested for HIV and know their status.
  • Start Talking. Stop HIV. – a campaign that seeks to reduce HIV infections among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men by encouraging open discussion between sex partners and friends about a range of HIV prevention options and strategies.
  • HIV Treatment Works – features people from across the U.S. living with HIV talking about how sticking with care and treatment helps them stay healthy, protect others and live longer, healthier lives. This campaign shows how people living with HIV have overcome barriers to get in care and stay on treatment.
  • Prevention IS Care – a toolkit that encourages HIV medical care providers to follow CDC recommendations regarding prevention for persons living with HIV by integrating brief prevention messages into patient visits.
  • HIV Screening. Standard Care. – campaign based on CDC recommendations and tailored to help medical providers move from risk-based testing to making HIV screening their standard of care. The resource kit is designed to help improve HIV outcomes among African American and Hispanic/Latino patients by making routine HIV testing the clinical standard for earlier diagnosis and linkage to care to help individuals live longer, healthier lives and prevent transmission.

Several of these campaigns are available in both English and Spanish.

New Guidelines for Vaccination for Persons Infected with HIV

The 2017 Advisory Council on Immunization Practices has announced new immunization practices for persons infected with HIV. These changes were effective on February 1. Key changes are:

  • Adults with anatomical or functional asplenia or persistent complement component deficiencies should receive a two-dose primary series of MenACWY, with doses administered at least 2 months apart, and revaccinate every 5 years. They should also receive a series of MenB with either MenB-4C (two doses administered at least 1 month apart) or MenB-FHbp (three doses administered at 0, 1–2, and 6 months).
  • Adults with HIV infection who have not been previously vaccinated should receive a two-dose primary MenACWY vaccination series, with doses administered at least 2 months apart, and be revaccinated every 5 years. Those who previously received one dose of MenACWY should receive a second dose at least 2 months after the first dose. MenB is not routinely recommended for adults with HIV infection, because meningococcal disease in this population is caused primarily by serogroups C, W, and Y.
  • Microbiologists who are routinely exposed to isolates of Neisseria meningitidis should receive one dose of MenACWY and be revaccinated every 5 years if the risk for infection remains, as well as either MenB-4C (two doses administered at least 1 month apart) or MenB-FHbp (three doses administered at 0, 1–2, and 6 months).
  • Adults at risk because of a meningococcal disease outbreak should receive one dose of MenACWY if the outbreak is attributable to serogroup A, C, W, or Y; or, if the outbreak is attributable to serogroup B, either MenB-4C (two doses administered at least 1 month apart) or MenB-FHbp (three doses administered at 0, 1–2, and 6 months).
  • Young adults aged 16 through 23 years (preferred age range is 16 through 18 years) who are healthy and not at increased risk for serogroup B meningococcal disease may receive either a two-dose series of MenB-4C at least 1 month apart or a two-dose series of MenB-FHbp at 0 and 6 months for short-term protection against most strains of serogroup B meningococcal disease.

Video: Breaking the Silence Through Storytelling: Confronting Medical Mistrust to Advance HIV Prevention

Baltimore City's Health Department is using storytelling to address medical mistrust when it comes to HIV prevention and treatment in its community. Two programs, Baltimore in Conversation and Project Presence, bring members of the community together to share stories of accessing healthcare and HIV treatment. These projects aim to create dialogue among the people most impacted by HIV so that the causes of medical mistrust can begin to be addressed.

A video produced by Mehroz Baig at the San Francisco Department of Public Health's (SFDPH’s) Capacity Building Assistance program profiles the Baltimore initiatives and the people who are participating in them. You can view the video on the SFDPH website.

New Eligibility Procedures for Texas HIV Medication Program

Effective March 1, the Texas HIV Medication Program (THMP) will implement revised program procedures related to recertification denials and eligibility determination. Details of these changes are outlined below.

  1. Clients found ineligible for THMP will now be disenrolled immediately. Previously, clients who were denied recertification were allowed to fill one additional bottle before finding other resources. Effective March 1, 2017, THMP has discontinued this practice.
  2. Incomplete applications will no longer be pended after August 31, 2017. Currently, incomplete applications are pended and the client is given the opportunity to complete the application. Applications classified as “Incomplete” include unsigned applications as well as those missing spousal income documents, missing pages, and missing residency documents, among other items.

Beginning September 1, 2017, applications will either be denied or approved. Incomplete applications will be denied and shredded. THMP will only pend applications in the following situations:

  1. Third party information was found that contradicts the client’s application (for example, information was found that indicates the client is married but they applied as single) and THMP is waiting for additional information that will resolve this conflict
  2. The client has an urgent need to enroll in the program (expedited) and can get missing information to the program within five days. Clients considered to have an urgent need include pregnant women, children under 18, those with CD4 counts under 100 (with lab slip), and those recently released from incarceration.

Clients and agency staff should be sure to copy and save all applications submitted to THMP in case there is a later need for resubmission. In addition, clients and agency staff should only send copies of supporting documents such as paystubs to THMP. Original documents should not be submitted.

THMP appreciates the significance of these changes to the community and welcomes requests for assistance or clarification. Please email Rachel Sanor at Rachel.sanor@dshs.texas.gov or call her at 512-533-3002 with questions.

Epi Profile Shows State of HIV in Texas

The DSHS TB/HIV/STD/Viral Hepatitis Unit released the 2015 Texas HIV Integrated Epidemiologic Profile (Epi Profile), a summary of information on known HIV/AIDS cases in Texas. The Epi Profile was created to assist planners, public health professionals, policy makers, and other stakeholders at the local and state level. It is a snapshot of the HIV epidemic in Texas at the end of 2015.

Over 82,000 Texans are known to be living with HIV. This does not include the nearly 18,000 persons who are estimated to be living with HIV and unaware of their infection. The face of HIV in Texas is increasingly young, black or Hispanic, and male. The vast majority of new infections and diagnoses occur in gay or other men who have sex with men (MSM).

You can read the Epi Profile and other reports from the TB/HIV/STD/Viral Hepatitis Unit on the Reports page.

Updates to the Pediatric Opportunistic Infections Guidelines

The Panel on Opportunistic Infections in HIV-Exposed and HIV-Infected Children has recently updated two sections of the Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Opportunistic Infections in HIV-Exposed and HIV-Infected Children:

  • Human Herpesvirus 8: A new graded recommendation has been added recommending that chemotherapy, along with continuation of antiretroviral therapy (ART), be provided to children with Kaposi sarcoma-related immune reconstitution syndrome. This recommendation is based on studies in HIV-infected adults with Kaposi sarcoma-associated immune reconstitution syndrome that found that addition of chemotherapy to ART was associated with reduced mortality compared with ART alone.

  • Microsporidiosis: A graded recommendation has been added recommending use of systemic fumagillin (where available) in addition to ART for microsporidiosis caused by Enterocytozoon bieneusi and Vittaforma corneae. The recommendation for use of oral albendazole in addition to topical fumagillin for keratoconjunctivitis has been limited to infections caused by microsporidia other than Enterocytozoon bieneusi and Vittaforma corneae, because of lack of activity of albendazole against these species.

For more information, please see What’s New in the Guidelines on the National Institutes of Health website.
