Abstract

The research reported here is of a study of the psychosocial impact of living with HIV/AIDS in Australia focusing on employment, accommodation and income in the environment of new treatments for HIV/AIDS. Many people experience profound changes to their lifestyle as a result of living with HIV/AIDS. In addition to detrimental changes in their health, many people experience major changes in their employment, accommodation, finances and relationships. The research highlights the significance of psychosocial factors along with changes in physical health in shaping PLWHAs (People Living with HIV/AIDS) changes in employment and accommodation. The new treatments now available for HIV/AIDS are further transforming people's attitudes, with many PLWHA considering returning to employment.
