HIV, Social Support, and Care among Vulnerable Women
Roger, Kerstin; Migliardi, Paula; Mignone, Javier
Journal of Community Psychology, v40 n5 p487-500 Jul 2012
Little research has been conducted on women living with HIV with a focus on caregiving. This paper explores data that emerged in a study examining caregiving networks among people living with HIV in the Prairies in Canada. Photovoice provided a methodology for data collection. The narratives presented suggest that while these women's lives are riddled with risk and violence, there are clear features to which they turn to in order to gain support and strength. Recommendations for future social support conclude the paper.
