Background and Objectives: People living with HIV (PLHIV) experience severe psychological pressure in most of communities; however, this pressure is more prominent among women. Therefore, exploring their social and psychological supports and stresses is very important. Based on this need, in this study, we assessed the level of general health, hope and social supports of PLHIV women who received supports and health cares from specific centers in a middle size city of Iran, Kerman.
Methods: in a triangulated study, a combination of qualitative and quantitative ones, PLHIV women were recruited and their information were collected using “general health questioner” of Goldenberg (1979), social support questioner of Sarason (1998), and hope questioner of Miller (1988).
Results: our findings showed that women had much better condition as the results of received services (improvement in hope: 92%, in general health: 80%, and social support: 93%). In addition, the correlation between general health and hope was strong and positive (r=0.61, p<0.0001).
Conclusion: our findings showed that such multi-disciplinary service providing centers may improve the quality of life and general health of these women substantially, who rigorously need social support.
