Background: In many parts of the world, stigma against persons living with HIV/AIDS is frequently associated with discrimination, an increased risk of HIV infection and diminished access to care and support. Purpose: to identify the perceptions of patients and their relatives about HIV/AIDS related stigma. Theoretical framework: Primary Health Care and Self-care. Subjects: Thirteen informants (7 patients and 6 relatives of the patients) participated; 6 males and 7 females, ages 18 to 40 years old were patients and relatives were ages 45 to 55. Method: This qualitative research employed a phenomenological approach with coding and analysis of transcripts. Results: Nine (9) themes emerged from the findings: (1) Lack of knowledge about HIV/AIDS, (2) Lack of information about medical condition, (3) Misperception about HIV/AIDS (4) Experiencing blame (5) Non-disclosure issues (6) Feelings of isolation (7) Feelings of intimidation (8) Feelings of desperation, and (9) Expressions of hope. Conclusion: Patients and their relatives lack of information about HIV/AIDS and perceive they have been stigmatized. These findings could be used to develop strategies to minimize stigma by improving knowledge about HIV/AIDS within the community. Such awareness might contribute to the earlier detection of HIV among members of high risk populations. Enhanced knowledge of HIV/AIDS could complement community-based nursing care including ARV therapy, adherence counseling, and other nursing measures intended to improve the quality of life for persons living with HIV/AIDS.
