Abstract [sv]
Over 65 million people have been infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) since the epidemic began year 1981. HIV and current medication for HIV cause a lot of suffering which makes it difficult for the patient to adhere to its' medication prescription. HIV-therapy demands 95% adherence to prevent increased virusload and detoriated diseasecorse. The aim of the study was to investigate which factors that affected the adult HIV-positive patients' medication adherence. In the result six categories came out and these were: private finances, disease knowledge, support, mental health, daily routines and medications. Factors that affected were among others fincial means, support from the family, friends and professional caregivers and these factors could affect both positive and negative on patients' adherence. the study showed that to reach optimal care it's important that caregivers are professional and adapt the care that is given to the patients' needs. Future research in this area should be concentrated towards a production of HIV-vaccine and to develop current HIV-medication determent not to give any side effects.
