March 6th 2018 - Dr. Robert H. Remien presented a plenary talk at the 25th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI2018) in Boston, MA., where he stressed the importance of addressing mental health to end the HIV epidemic and achieve the UNAIDS 90-90-90 goals. 

Treatment for mental disorders and adherence interventions has an additive effect to those with HIV, positively affecting HIV health outcomes like PrEp treatment, reducing depression and anxiety, and ultimately increasing quality of life.

Integration of services to screen and manage mental health and substance use disorders into HIV care settings is a promising strategy to improve mental health and HIV treatment outcomes among people living with HIV/AIDS, including in resource-constrained settings.
