Description This study aimed to assess the relationship between social support, sociodemographic and clinical characteristics and treatment adherence using the Social Support Inventory for People who are HIV Positive or Have AIDS. Thus, it were evaluated 119 HIV-positive patients, of which 53.8% were men. Regarding the availability and satisfaction mean values were 3.37 (DP=1.00) for the instrumental support and 3.48 (DP=1.06) for emotional support. Significant differences were found in the availability and satisfaction of social support with clinical and sociodemographic variables. It was found that the greater the availability and satisfaction with social support, the greater the OR for adherence to treatment. The development of social support strategies can positively contribute to disease control and better quality of life of HIV-positive patients.
Este estudo investigou a relação entre suporte social, características sociodemográficas, clínicas e adesão ao Tratamento Antirretroviral (TARV) utilizando o questionário Social Support Inventory for People who are HIV Positive or Have AIDS. Para isso, foram avaliados 119 usuários HIV-positivos - dos quais 53,8% eram homens. Em relação à disponibilidade e satisfação, os valores médios foram de 3,37 (DP=1,00) para o suporte instrumental e 3,48 (DP=1,06) para o suporte emocional. Observaram-se diferenças significativas na disponibilidade e satisfação do suporte social com variáveis sociodemográficas e clínicas. Verificou-se que, quanto maior a disponibilidade e a satisfação com o suporte social, maior o OR para a adesão ao tratamento. O desenvolvimento de estratégias de apoio social pode contribuir positivamente para o controle da doença e melhor qualidade de vida dos usuários.
