Abstract [en]

HIV is a serious infection that leads to AIDS when it's untreated. HIV-epidemic started in the early 80's. Homosexuals became infected and the disease were seen as a "gay-disease". The disease is still today by some seen as a "gay-disease", and affect the patients well-being. The aim of this study was to illuminate experiences of care in patients with HIV. The method was a literature-based study of qualitative scientific articles. The result shows that the patients still experience discrimination and stigmatization. There is a lot of negative attitudes towards the patients, and some health professionals shows a lack of empathy. A lot of the health professionals have a lack of knowledge, and a fear of being contaminated. More knowledge about the diesea, and focus on the patients well-being could make a differens in the patients experiences of care.
