Abstract [sv]

The aim of this study was to examine how Tanzanian HIV-positive women experience their socioeconomic situation. Semistructured interviews were carried out and the number of interviewees was 15. Collected data was analysed according to a qualitative content analysis and resulted in an overarching theme; Struggle for survival and tolerable life. Important in the lives of the informants was the access to economic and social resources. The informants described access to economic resources as important because of the possibilty to support oneself and the possibility of a lower level of physical strain. Social resources gave the informants knowledge for a healthy lifestyle and mental support for inner strength. Further research is ought to examine how economic and social support is being comprehend and used, and with a particular weight on the social support because of lack of knowledge in this field. Research which is considering the men´s view of their situation is also important, since a change of the men´s situation could involve a change of the women´s situation.
