Objective: 1. Analyze participants’ accounts of their health needs, their use of health care, drug treatment and social services. 2. Identify how structural and interpersonal factors in care delivery and social welfare systems support or hinder HIV infected women in accessing resources. Design: This is a cross-sectional study that is a discrete part of an in-depth longitudinal qualitative study in which HIV-infected women from urban and rural Wisconsin are being followed through multiple data collection points over a 24-month period. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: The population was urban and rural women infected with HIV; the sample was drawn from the State of Wisconsin, in the Midwestern part of the United States during 2000-2001. Concept or Variables Studied Together or Intervention and Outcome Variables: The concepts studied were the health-related experiences and the complex obstacles faced by women living with HIV, as well as the motivations and strengths of these women. Methods: In-depth narrative interview of 2-3 hours in lengths were done with a multi-racial sample women. Interviews were taped, and transcribe to facilitate analysis. A multi-stage narrative analysis was the primary analytic approach. A variety of data reduction, data display, and iterative techniques were applied to the data. Findings: The findings described are the health-related experience of HIV-infected women, the complexity of the obstacles they face, and the motivations and strengths of these women. Conclusions: Data that illustrate real-life situations of HIV infected women lead to understanding the impact of HIV on the lives of infected women, and support interventions that are effective, appropriate, and capacity building. Implications: Understanding the motivations and strengths of women infected with HIV 1) supports planning for health care and social services for HIV infected women, 2) builds understanding to inform interventions aimed at secondary prevention of HIV-related symptomatology and progressive disease in women, and 3) informs efforts for primary prevention of HIV transmission to children, sex partners, and drug use associates of HIV infected women.
