Project: Research Project

Project Details


The health-related quality of life of people living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) depends on physical, mental and social factors. On the social side, perceived social support has been found to be a predictive variable of quality of life. The aim of this paper is to examine the relationship between quality of life and perceived social support in people living with HIV. It is an observational cross-sectional study of older people with HIV, belonging to the B24 program of the Red Hospitalaria Méderi in Bogotá, Colombia. The generic quality of life questionnaires (SF-36) and the perceived social support questionnaire (Duke 11) were used together with the measurement of certain socio-demographic characteristics.
