Abstract

The prevalence of tobacco smoking among people with HIV (PWH) ranges from 40% to 70%. Additionally, tobacco smoking is higher among low-income individuals, yet few studies have examined tobacco smoking in low socioeconomic status PWH. Using data from a cohort of PWH receiving care in an urban HIV clinic, we characterized factors associated with current and former smoking and with initiation/re-initiation and cessation of tobacco use. Among a study sample of 1,607 PWH, the prevalence of current smoking was 46.6% among men and 46.0% among women. Current smoking in men and women was associated with Medicaid insurance status, substance use, and panic symptoms. In women, but not men, hazardous alcohol use decreased the likelihood of quitting smoking and increased the risk of initiation/re-initiation. Smoking interventions for low-income, urban PWH may need to be tailored to address mental health and substance use comorbidities.
