Abstract:

Session presented on: Saturday, November 16, 2013

The study aims to investigate the link between the home environment and its contribution to the success of the program on prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV/AIDS at a Provincial Hospital in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.

The purpose of this study was to explore whether a good support system outside of the Health Service has a positive effect in contributing to a successful PMTCT program in Kwa-Zulu Natal- South Africa

  • To explore the link between the home environment and the contribution this has on the success of the PMTCT program
  • To make recommendations based on the research findings on strategies that could improve family involvement for these women.

 

A qualitative, explorative, descriptive and contextual study will be used in this study to explore the home environment for the support system available for the HIV positive women on the PMTCT program. The population of this study includes all women who have been counseled and tested HIV positive and who have joined the program on Prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV/AIDS. A total of 10 women were interviewed as saturation was attained.

Data were collected using semi-structured interviews and tape recording used with permission of the participants and interviews were transcribed verbatim. The central question that was asked was: “Describe to me the support you receive from your family and friends?”, and this was explored further by utilizing a prepared topic guide.

Content analysis was used and it was done manually. The initial analysis would include identifying common themes and then to link major themes together under broader categories by checking for word repetitions.

This study revealed that one of the major issues still surrounding HIV/AIDS and PMTCT is that of non disclosure, selective disclosure and the stigma and discrimination that surrounds this disease.
