Not enough evidence-based intervention programs exist to improve the quality of life (QOL) of people living with HIV (PLHIV), and even less for IDU. Most programs for this group concern injection risk reduction (Garfein & al., 2007; Strathdee & al., 2006; Wright & al., 2006), drug abuse treatment or needle exchange (Strathdee & al., 2006). Therefore, to develop evidence-based and effective program for HIV positive men who are also IDU, we need to understand the factors associated with their QOL, as proposed at the first step of intervention mapping. 2
Intervention Mapping (IM): › Tool for planning, developing and evaluating health promotion and education programs › Socio-ecological approach to health › Series of 6 iterative steps and associated tasks › Systematic application of theory, empirical findings from the literature (evidence), and additional qualitative and quantitative data from targeted population and community › Participation of all actors in the process Step1: Needs assessment › Scientific, epidemiological, behavioral and social analysis of an at-risk group or community and its problems. Importance of taking into account the heterogeneity of target population › Effort to understand the characteristic of the community, its members, and its strengths 3 Bartholomew, L.K.; Parcel, G.S.; Kok, G; Gottlieb N.H. (2006). Planning Health Promotion Programs: an Intervention Mapping Approach
In a sample of people living with HIV (PLHIV), describe the psychosocial characteristics that differentiate men IDU from other subgroups: heterosexual men non-IDU, men who have sex with men (MSM) non-IDU and women. 4
Data come from the MAYA study, a longitudinal study on quality of life of PLHIV in Montreal, Canada. A total of 904 participants were recruited between 2004 and 2007 through 11 medical clinics and HIV community organizations in Montreal. Participants were met at 6-months interval (T0, T1, T2 & T3) › They completed a questionnaire in a face-to-face interview. Of these participants, 124 (13.7%) were men IDU including heterosexual and MSM. For this presentation, we cross-sectionally analyzed this data. 5
Analyses: 1. Descriptive analyses (frequencies, means, standard deviations) were executed on socio-demographic variables (age, annual income, relationship, etc.). 2. ANOVA were used to differentiate the 4 subgroups on several variables: Quality of life and its dimensions; Psychological factors (self-esteem, psychological distress (depression, anxiety) and orientation to life (meaningfullness, comprehensibility and menageability)); Coping strategies; Social dimensions (network diversity, social integration with friends, family and partner). 3. Stepwise multivariate logistic regression was performed to identify the characteristics associated with belonging to the IDU subgroup. Significant variables for the IDU group in the ANOVA analyses were integrated into the model. 6

Compared to the other three subgroups, men IDU had significantly lower scores on quality of life, family and friends social integration scales, and on the orientation to life scale (manageability factor). Men IDU also present more psychological distress, and more frequently use alcohol and drug as a coping strategy than the other subgroups. The reality of men IDU is similar to the reality of heterosexual men non-IDU on two aspects: their social network was less diversified and their score on the social integration scale concerning their friends was lower than the score of MSM non-IDU and women. 14

The specificities of the needs of men living with HIV who use injection drugs must be addressed. Beyond clinical follow-up, systematic interventions should be offered to men IDU living with HIV with the following objectives: › reducing psychological distress; › diversifying coping strategies; › promoting social integration and social support. Others studies supported this finding. Social support (Préau & al., 2007) and depression (Marcellin & al., 2007) must be improved in the context of psychosocial intervention with HIV positive IDU. Following the intervention mapping framework, this assessment process will be completed by the validation of these conclusions in partnership with community organizations in the perspective of future interventions. Limitations: › Data introduced here cannot be generalized to all HIV positive men IDU because of their number (n=124) and recruitment bias (volunteer participants). 16
