    Title Randomized Controlled Trial of Feeding a Concentrated Formula to Infants Born to Women Infected by Human Immunodeficiency Virus.
    Date October 2009
    Journal Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition

    We tested the hypothesis that concentrated formula (CF) begun within the first 2 weeks of life increases growth in infants born to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected mothers.

    Title Haart, Adherence, and Cultural Issues in the Us Latino Community.
    Date November 2004
    Journal The Aids Reader

    Latinos represent the largest and fastest growing minority group in the United States. They are a culturally diverse population united by a common Spanish language. Although they represent approximately 13% of the US population, Latinos account for 19% of diagnosed HIV cases and 20% of AIDS cases. Latinos typically present late in the course of the disease and face barriers to care, including limited health care access and the withholding of HAART by care providers. Adherence to HAART can be difficult to predict, but adherence can be improved through better patient-centered care and better provider understanding of Latino cultural issues and needs.
