Abstract:

Poster presented on: Tuesday, July 23, 2013, Monday, July 22, 2013

Purpose: Had as main objective to assess the impact of religiosity and quality of life of people in use of antiretroviral therapy. This was a cross-sectional study was carried out in the referral hospital for infectious diseases in Ceará, northeast Brazil, in 2012.

The collected data were analyzed using STATA v.11. It was described the major characteristics of the total study and stratified according to the degrees of membership and performed bivariate analyzes, applied different tests to compare proportions and correlations.
