Personality disorder: taking a person‐centred approach | Emerald Insight
Mental illnesses, such as depression, and neurocognitive impairment are prominent among people living with HIV. They can add significantly to the burden of living with HIV and severely compromise health-related quality of life.
Long-term care for people living with HIV should therefore integrate services to assess and manage any mental health and neurocognitive issues, including access to psychosocial support and other relevant specialists. Fulfilling sexual and reproductive health, underpinned by knowledge of how to maintain protective behaviours, is a key aspect of the health and quality of life of people living with HIV. Access to accurate information and advice on HIV transmission and methods of contraception should be complemented with services relating to conception, childbirth, and parenting options available for all.

Action to address stigma and fear related to the sexuality of people living with HIV is also crucial. Biomedical interventions available today can play a key role in this respect. PLHIV should have the opportunity to become involved in decisions about their care. Decision aids explaining the advantages and disadvantages of different treatment options can empower PLHIV to discuss these options with care providers, and make informed choices in the light of personal circumstances.
Building upon existing initiatives in this area, the development of such tools should harness the expertise of HIV community organisations.
