HIV-related stigma and physical symptoms have a persistent influence on health-related quality of life in Australians with HIV infection.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23566318

CONCLUSIONS:

The analysis showed that psychological distress was a major influence on HRQL in our cohort. This was compounded in people with poor physical health which in turn was associated with unemployment and depression. People with HIV infection are living longer and residual side effects of the earlier regimens complicate current clinical management and affect their quality of life. However, even for the newly diagnosed exposed to less toxic regimens, HIV-related stigma exerts negative social and psychological effects. It is evident that context-specific interventions are required to address persistent distress related to stigma reframe personal and public perceptions of HIV infection and ameliorate its disabling social and psychological effects.
Let's have a Kiki!
