Universal Test and Treat (UTT) strategies that successfully meet or exceed 90-90-90 targets will leave up to 27% of people living with HIV/AIDS virally non-suppressed. The epidemiological profile of this “missing 27%,” including risk behavior, mobility, and network connections, must be examined in order to fully evaluate the effectiveness of UTT. (C. Camlin, CAPS/PRC)
Among a sample of transgender women in Puerto Rico, more than 75% had used hormones. Among those who used hormones, about half reported using injectable hormones or combining these with pills. 25% of the sample had injected liquid silicone, and this was most often performed by an injection specialist or inyeccionistas. Such operations may be done illicitly or not safely. (T. Neilands, CAPS/PRC)

Laboratory-based surveillance of HIV prevalence in Alameda County is a mostly representative and reasonably complete (87%) sample of the target population of people living with HIV. The decomposable graphs approach (DGA) model overcomes the shortcomings of the traditional analytic approach (i.e. model selection). (P. Wesson, W. McFarland, CAPS/PRC)
