Background: Complementary therapy (CT) is defined as alternative treatments together with conventional therapies. CT is widely used along with ARV therapy for treatment of HIV patients in Indonesia. There has been limited study of the use complementary therapy among people living with HIV (PLWH) in Indonesia. Purpose: To identify the association of demographic characteristic & the use of complementary therapy in relation to symptoms of PLWH. Methods: Descriptive correlation study, using questionnaire consisted of demographics information and the use of complementary therapy. Setting: Dharmais hospital, Jakarta, Indonesia. Sample: A convenience sample was used, with the criteria of HIV positive person, following Antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, able to read and understand Indonesian language. Results: 62 patients participated. Most participants aged: 21-25 y.o. (75.8%); male (67.7%); graduated from High School (56.5%); and not working (51.6%). Most participants have symptoms of exhaustion (77.4%); body ache (71%); coughing (67.7%); diarrhea (67.7%); fever (61.3%); insomnia (54.8%) & loss of appetite (51.6%). There is no different in using CT when PLWH experience symptoms among different age, but there is significant different in taking CT when experience some symptoms like stomachache, fever, diarrhea, & body ache among PLWH with different educational background. There is significant different in experience body ache, vomiting, & exhaustion between PLWH who always & who don't always take ARV. There is a positive relationship between adherence to ARV and experience exhaustion & vomiting, negative relationship to bodyache. Conclusion: Over half of individuals living with HIV used CT to relieve the symptoms of exhaustion and body ache. Over half of those who used CT reported relief from symptoms. Implication: The results inform nurses and other health practitioners of complementary therapy used by HIV patients. Further study is recommended whether complementary therapy interacts with the medication prescribed by the physicians.
