Abstract

A new era in HIV/AIDS treatment began in 1996 with the advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). The advent of these new medicines expanded the treatment resources and improved life expectancy and quality of life for persons living with HIV and AIDS, favoring the maintenance and initiation of relationships between partners with discordant HIV serological status. The main objective of this study with serodiscordant couples was to understand the three dimensions of vulnerability - programmatic, social, and individual - in these couples. The study, belonging to the field of social constructionism, used analysis of discursive practices and production of meanings. Forty in-depth interviews were conducted with couples followed in a clinical research institute. The main results include the lack of information on sexuality in the family and in schools, distorted knowledge on HIV prevention and transmission, inadequacies in HIV testing, and flaws in communicating test results.
