VALLEJOS GALEANO, Shirley Janine. Quality of life in human immunodeficiency virus carriers with antiretroviral therapy. Rev. virtual Soc. Parag. Med. Int. [online]. 2016, vol.3, n.1, pp.42-52. ISSN 2312-3893.

Introduction: Determination of the quality of life in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has a great social impact not only in relation to economic and political repercussions for the treatment and prevention but also it would allow their consideration in health decisions encouraging protective and welfare factors. Objectives: To determine the quality of life of HIV patients who receive treatment in the National Hospital of Itauguá in 2015. Methods: Cross-sectional descriptive study that included 102 HIV patients receiving antiretroviral therapy and attending the National Hospital from May to October, 2015. The MOS-SF-30 was used and immunological determinations of CD4 and viral load were made. Results: 54.9% were women and 45.1% men, with ages between 17 and 63 years old. All of them worked. In 100%, transmission was by sexual via. In relation to the quantity of CD4, the range was between 3 and 1,530 cell/mm3. The 70.59% presented undetectable viral load at the time of the survey. Concerning the perception of quality of life, 66.67% referred having a very good quality of life in contrast to the total sum of the score where only 8.8% of them were above the 90th percentile. Conclusions: Most of the surveyed patients perceived a better health state and quality of life in contrast to the total score of health related quality of life obtained.
