Living with HIV : An autobiography (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Humant immunbristvirus (HIV) är en virussjukdom som smittar via blod och sexuella kontakter. Med bra bromsmediciner kan en person med HIV leva utan några fysiska symptom. När HIV upptäcktes skapades mycket fördomar och rädsla kring sjukdomen som till viss del fortfarande lever vidare idag. Syfte: Att beskriva personers erfarenheter av att leva med HIV. Metod: Analys av narrativer där sex självbiografier analyserades som var skrivna av personer med HIV. Resultat: Ur analysen av datamaterialet framkom två kategorier; Ett förändrat liv och värdesätter erfarenheter av HIV med sju underkategorier. Konklusion: Personer med HIV upplever en sämre hälsa på grund av känslor som ensamhet och utanförskap. Med ökade kunskaper om sjukdomen kan fördomarna minskas i hälso- och sjukvården. Sjuksköterskan kan öka dessa personers välbefinnande genom att ha goda kunskaper om sjukdomen, ge ett respektfullt bemötande och informera om sexuell hälsa.
