RITA: HIV and smoking
The latest issue of RITA includes three main articles.
- An interview with HIV smoking expert Jonathan Shuter on motivating and helping HIV positive smokers to quit, including discussion of his online quitting programme, “PositivelySmokeFreeMe”.
- A review article analysing smoke-ending strategies in people living with HIV.
- A review article summarising the impact of smoking on health of HIV positive people and how that impact differs from the effect of smoking in the general population.
