BRAN-PIEDRAHITA, Lemy; PALACIOS-MOYA, Lucía; BERMUDEZ-ROMAN, Viviana  y  POSADA-ZAPATA, Isabel Cristina. Changes perceived in daily life by adults living with HIV. Convergencia [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.76, pp.57-74. ISSN 2448-5799.

The aim of the present work is to understand the perception of adults living with HIV in the city of Medellin, Colombia, regarding the social and economic changes produced in their daily life by the disease. A qualitative study was developed, involving thirteen informants diagnosed with HIV. The information was collected with semi-structured interviews and for its analysis elements of the Grounded Theory were taken into account. Changes in daily life are reflected in the reconfiguration of the self-image, the forms of family relationships and the financial dependence as a result of the complications derived from the virus and the stigma of the disease. It is pertinent to develop studies on this subject with a gender approach, given the hermetic attitude of women living with the disease to talk about it, which is due to the existing stigma against this infection.

Palabras llave : quality of life; discrimination; perception; interpersonal relations; HIV/AIDS.
