  5. Individual and Neighborhood Effects Associated with Stigma and Quality of Life among HIV-infected Urban African American Men
    Research Objective: Neighborhood characteristics are increasingly recognized as contextual factors necessary for understanding health, risk behaviors, disease patterns and treatment and prevention trajectories. This research uses a multidimensional approach to the understanding of quality of life among African American men living with HIV/AIDS by: (a) exploring and describing individual and neighborhood constructs influencing stigma and quality of life (QOL), and (b) developing and testing a model about the pathways of influence between individual and neighborhood factors in the experience of HIV stigma relative to QOL. Study Design: Cross-sectional descriptive survey design was used to examine selected socio-demographic variables, their association and influence on the quality of life among a sample of urban African American males. Questionnaires were administered assessing: individual factors, neighborhood social disorder; self efficacy; social stigma and QOL. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Population Studied: Participants were recruited through a community-based organization in an urban setting a Midwestern state. A snowball sampling technique was used to obtain a sample of (n=117) African American men (18 years or older) who self-reported as being HIV-infected. Principal Findings: Participants ranged in age from 21 to 60 years (M=42.62, SD=8.25). The average length of time since diagnosis =13.17 years (SD=7.63). Over 75% of the men had at least a high school diploma. Over half identified their sexual orientation as bisexual or homosexual. Neighborhood effects, self efficacy, perceived stigma and current drug use were significantly correlated to QOL. Current drug users perceived more stigmas, less self efficacy and reported poorer QOL than non-drug users. Forty-one percent of the variance in QOL was explained by individual factors, neighborhood social disorder, self efficacy and stigma. Stigma mediated the effects of neighborhood social disorder on QOL and the domains of physical health and environment. Conclusions: Results from this study provide support for the need to recognize and address self efficacy, as well as stigma and neighborhood social disorder, including illicit drug use, to improve the quality of African American HIV-infected individuals’ lives. While focusing on clinical indicators of HIV disease and associated co-morbidities is undeniably necessary for improving quality of life for persons living with HIV/AIDS, it is not sufficient. We contend that a more multilevel conception of QOL is necessary, one that fully recognizes the large effects psychosocial and environmental variables such as self-efficacy, HIV stigma, and neighborhood social disorder can have in reducing quality of life for urban populations.

  6. Interpersonal and Attitudinal Factors Characterizing Patterns of Healthcare Utilization Among HIV-Infected Urban African American- Does it Matter?
    Abstract: Background: Patient-provider interactions take into consideration different aspects of care, including whether patients can get appointments in a timely manner, whether they feel valued and listened to, perceptions of their health care provider commitment, and whether they have a usual source of care. The aims of this study are to: (a) identify and describe healthcare utilization patterns and barriers to healthcare among HIV-infected African American men; (b) describe the interpersonal and attitudinal factors that characterizes perceived attitudes toward HIV healthcare providers; and (c) analyze relationships among selected participant factors and situational variables, and evaluating contributions of these factors and variables relative to the outcome variable (attitudes toward healthcare providers). Methods: A cross sectional design using a convenience sample of African American men (n=117) who self-reported as being HIV-infected recruited through a community-based organization. Survey questionnaires were administered to assess health care utilization patterns, stigma, general perceived self-efficacy, and attitudes towards health care provider. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and t-tests, followed by correlations and hierarchical multiple regression statistics. Findings: Sixty-seven participants (57.3%) indicated they did not seek health care when needed and sixty (51%) of the respondents indicated that they have missed at least one appointment with their HIV health care provider (HCP). Results revealed strong positive correlations between the HCP spending enough time with the patient, and the individual’s ability to access care when needed as indicated by the total Attitudes toward HIV Health Care Providers (AHHCP) scale, and the subscales of emotional support and professionalism. Participants perceiving lack of health care provider commitment and having been denied care when needed were negatively correlated to the total AHHCP scale and the subscales of professionalism and emotional support. Self efficacy was significantly correlated to the AHHCP total score and the subscale of emotional support. Examining the total AHHCP scale, health care utilization variables, stigma and self-efficacy explained 43.3% of the variance in the participant’s attitudes towards their HIV healthcare providers. Taking antiretroviral medications was a significant predictor for the total AHHCP scale and subscales of professionalism and emotional support. Conclusions: The data obtained from the current study provides important contextual perspectives on health care utilization barriers among HIV-infected African men in an urban setting. There are a number of interpersonal- attitudinal variables that emerged as factors that are associated with healthcare utilization patterns and perceptions towards health care providers that have implications for intervention with HIV-infected patients and for HIV healthcare providers. HIV treatment programs should embrace a holistic approach to health care—one that incorporates the patient in the plan of care and that would nurture trusting and positive patient-provider interactions.
