|Abstract: ||Objective: To communicate life stories of people who suffer from
acquired immunodeficiency-syndrome with a higher vulnerability
registered at the Municipal Secretary of Social Assistance and the
diagnostic’s influence on their daily routine.
Method: Descriptive and exploratory study based on oral life history.
Thirteen people with AIDs took part in the study via a semi-structured
interview. The narratives were analyzed using Bardin’s thematic content
Results: Three thematic axes emerged from Bardin’s content analysis:
prejudice and discrimination regarding the life routine with aids; Reaction
when facing the diagnostic and the adhesion process for the
antiretroviral treatment; Confrontation of religion and religiousness on
people with aids.
Conclusion: The people living with aids, a chronic and stigmatizing
disease, need the support of multidisciplinary teams and an improvement
in relation to the access, the coverage and the meaning assigned
to the disease, besides a better quality of life and social assistance.
We conclude that religion did not contribute to facing these people’s
conditions. It brought blame, incorrect information that may impair
the treatment and their follow-up. One infers that health education regarding
HIV/AIDS needs to be remodeled on all of society’s segments.|
